Follow Jesus to the Ends of the Earth

In Branson, This Is Where You Eat

Visit Billy Bob’s Dairyland for the best burger you’ll find anywhere, as my son and I and thousands of others can attest. Also, don’t bring a credit card, because this tripadvisor hall of fame member only takes cash (or checks, if you still carry those).

Lives of Quiet Desperation?

I found this chart fascinating. More people did not vote in the recent election than voted for either candidate. How should we interpret this chart? Were the mass of non-voters not interested in either candidate? Do they feel like their vote does not matter regardless of who’s running? Is this group of people who did not vote comfortable with neither candidate, or checked out of the process?

It’s foreign to me, as an activist type of person, to consider not voting. What else do these folks not engage in? Are they active in their schools and churches and communities, or are they quietly moving through life on their own? Henry David Thoreau stated that “the mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.” Does this describe these non-voters?

I’m puzzled.

P.S. I encourage you to check out the website of the folks that produce this chart.

Walk The Camino de Santiago With Us This Fall!

Dawn and I will once again be leading a trip with Cru Global Missions to walk the Camino de Santiago in Northern Spain this coming fall (September 23 – October 2, 2017). This will be a week of reflection and renewal on the pilgrimage route traveled by followers of Jesus for a thousand years. We’re super excited to go again and take folks with us, especially as we learned so much on the Camino last year.

If you’re interested in joining us, please let me know and I can send you more info. Spots are limited. But so are the opportunities in life to follow in the paths of fellow pilgrims and experience “walking with Jesus” in a new and powerful way!
