In the movie Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, 9 nine year old Oscar says that people often treat other people like numbers, but that people aren’t like numbers at all. Instead, they are like letters because letters can tell stories.  I quite agree.

I love stories.

Over the years in ministry, I’ve made my share of mistakes, I’ve worked with some great teams, I’ve met my share of jerks, and I’ve experienced some tremendous victories while enduring some gut wrenching losses.

Through it all, I’ve discovered that the stories are what I remember most. Everyone is either the subject of a story, has their own story to tell, or both.

In my blog, I tell lots of stories, hopefully helping others in church ministry, in various ways. Hopefully, these stories will better enable us all to better live for Jesus, the greatest storyteller of them all.

I love writing. Besides this blog, I’ve published over 480 drama scripts, articles, devotions, and poems and one full length devotional. My first novel, Bad Preacher is available on Amazon here

I am thankful to the staff and congregation of Celebration Church, where I am fortunate to serve alongside them. Celebration is a multi-site church based in New Orleans. Currently, we have 9 congregations across Southeast Louisiana and one in Turrialba, Costa Rica.
