A letter to my son…

Son, Hi. I’m Eric. You’ll call me dad. It won’t be long now before you enter the world … and change my life forever. I couldn’t be more excited for your arrival!! Seriously, I sometimes am still floored that you are there … growing big and strong in your momma’s belly. I’m excited, but I … Continue reading

Wednesday is for … worship …

Vision and fear…

I still feel very “green” in my position here at the BSU.  This is my first experience leading a ministry like this, and I am learning a lot … and being stretched in a lot of ways too. One way that I’m  growing is in the area of Vision.   (not talking eyesight here … although … Continue reading

May I introduce you to…

… yourself?  To the person that I knew and created in womb when I set you apart? To the person whom I began a good work in and am faithful to carry it on to completion? These are the questions that I feel like God has been asking me over these last several weeks.  It’s … Continue reading
