Is God on vacation?


It's great to take time off and enjoy the beach with family and friends!

The weather has been awesome!

On vacation my normal schedule goes out the window. I don't have to get up and do anything. I have no meetings or voice mails.

There's been plenty of waves to ride and very competitive games of corn hole!

In today's techno society I still get email. My only excuse is that I don't want to have to go through hundreds of emails, if not thousands when I return in another week.

What I enjoy the most is knowing that God does not take a vacation!

I received an email from a friend and almost fell to the floor in misbelief!

God is up to something really exciting in the Northside!

The details will come in the future as things unfold!

I can't wait to see all that is going to take place when I return!

I love that God does not take a vacation!

The need for reconciliation in Richmond is far greater than I ever knew. I grew up in a bubble and even more recently, I work and live in a bubble.

I have learned so much about the racial divide that exists. I have been ignorant of the fact most of my entire life!

I unknowingly created my own bubble.

If you don't put yourself in a place to learn and grow you may be blind to the things around you.

While I have been on this journey to help homelessness, I have come to see the significant issues that exist. In the Northside on Brookland Park, I am the minority and it is obvious. If you are Caucasian walking alone then you will not be spoken to.

I realize the policies and laws from the past that have created a lot of the problems from redlining, to people's deeds that state that a property can not be sold to a "non-Caucasian". I had never heard of such a thing!

It's wrong and we need to recognize it and move towards love and reconciliation.

We are all called to a ministry of reconciliation and now is the time to make it happen in Richmond.

We have created the racial divide, but the bible teaches reconciliation for ALL!

We are ALL called to be reconciled to God!

I am praying for reconciliation in Richmond!

2 Corinthians 5

New Living Translation (NLT)

18 And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. 19 For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. 20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” 21 For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.

I'm hungry!

I miss my weekly breakfast with Charles!

Charles is my close friend who I met back in February. 

Charles is an extremely generous guy! He has an incredible sense of humor and he always makes me laugh!

Charles is also my mentor when it comes to helping the homeless!

He knows the streets. He spent 33 years on the streets, homeless and a drug addict!

God has gotten a hold of Charles.

Every time we meet I learn something new that helps me to better understand the homeless situation. God also uses our time together to teach me more about myself as well.

Charles has done more to help people in the Northside than anybody I know. Charles is an inspiration!

I look forward to my next breakfast with Charles!

PS Charles I'll take the extravaganza!

Pray for a bus!

One of the biggest hurdles for those trying to overcome homelessness is the lack of employment. Employment becomes an obsticle because of the lack of transportation. 

It's hard to get a job much less keep a job, if you don't have reliable transportation.

Over the past few months I have seen jobs available out near Hanover Air Park and Short Pump. 

The problem; no buses go out that far!

There are lots of folks needing jobs and there are jobs available!

I know of four jobs that were open and I could not fill because of the lack of transportation! 

Wouldn't it be great to find a bus or a van and make it happen!

Charles told me he knows a possible driver. If we fill it with 15 people it would be self sustaining.

I would love to see a home made bus route!

What could it look like? 

Start in Northside drive to Hanover Air Park , Short Pump and back!

When I told Mark of the idea, he said he would call a pastor friend of his. Mark called his friend and asked if he had a passenger van we could use. His friend responded very surprised!

He said no he didn't have a van, but he was right in the middle of applying for a grant to get a passenger van!

I'm praying for a bus!

What is love?

I received a text today from Lil with the above pic!

It almost brought me to tears! The text said "We circled so u can rest!"

I asked who? She said "Your adoring staff!"

The staff of Atlee Community Church "stood in the gap" as I am away on vacation.

There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for one's friends. (John 15:13 NLT)

I am resting!

I am on vacation for the next two weeks!

My wife asked me what am I writing about when I am on vacation. I don't think you want to hear about the beach.

I do know that God is preparing me for a wild ride when I return home. I am excited about the possibilities!

I need to rest.

I have been on a crazy journey since last September and now is a time to sit back and reflect on what God has done and what the future holds.

I have definitely been energized by all that has taken place over the last few months, but now?

I need to rest.

I look forward with great anticipation of what the next few months will unfold. I am not sure of exactly what it will look like but if it's anything like the last few months.

I need to rest!!!

A Miracle this past Sunday!

What's my definition of a Miracle? I see it as an event where God shows himself strong outside of my own self..

This past Sunday I saw God do a Miracle!

For those who are new to this blog, I started a prayer walk around Northminster Church in Northside several months ago.

What's a prayer walk you might ask? A prayer walk is where I pray for the people around a particular area. In this case I am praying for the church and the people in the neighborhood.

I felt led by God to start this prayer walk after visiting the church on a Saturday back in February.

For months I have been praying and I have seen God show up so many times it's hard to count! I have tried to keep track of them in this blog.

This past Sunday I was given the opportunity to speak with the leadership team about generosity.

Generosity as it relates to what I have experienced with the culture change at Atlee Community Church. A Miracle in and of itself! I hope to share that story another time!

Keep in mind I knew nothing about Northminster back in February, except I had met the pastor Sammy a few times outside of Church.

Some questions that might come to mind.

How did I get invited? Why me? What did I have to say that would be worth listening to?

Easy answer!

God showed up and showed himself strong!

It all started with the prayer walk! After a few months Beth from Northminster joined me on the walk to pray. I shared with her what had taken place at Atlee. Beth shared the story with Sammy. Sammy joined me on the prayer walk and heard of God's miracle at Atlee. Sammy wanted to share it with his leadership team.

It's exciting to share what God is doing! When God is on the move I can't contain the excitement.

This all began because of a prayer walk! Intentional time with God!

If you want to see a miracle, start being intentional with your relationship with God!

How can we best serve others?

I recently received the following article from Robert Lupton. 

It will make you think!

Asking the Right Questions about Serving

June 2012
by Bob Lupton
Planning a mission trip or service project?  Want to make sure you are helping rather than hurting?  The following questions will help you determine whether your service will be transformative or toxic.
Whose needs are you serving?   You want this to be a meaningful experience for your group.  But if most of your planning energy is being invested in ensuring that the event will be “a life-changing experience” for your members, this may be a clue that it is more about serving your group than serving the poor.  This is a particularly difficult question for mission pastors and youth leaders since they are hired to minister primarily to church members.  A well organized, spiritually-motivated, hands-on mission trip can be very satisfying to volunteers and yield moving accounts for back-home reporting.   It is doubtful, however, that a “what-works best-for-us” approach will have transformative impact among those on the receiving end who are expected to accommodate to the schedules and preferences of their resourced visitors.
Is the proposed activity meeting a real need?   An African woman recently told us that as a child she never understood why Americans loved to paint so much.  In preparation for the Americans’ arrival in her rural village her classmates were instructed to deface the school building with mud and stones so their guests would have something to paint.  Her entire school building was repainted five times in the four years she was a student there.  Extreme example?  Perhaps.  But unfortunately it is representative of the make-work projects often created to make compassionate volunteers feel good about serving.  If a project is truly important to those being served, they will be first investors in that effort with their own leadership, labor and resources.
Is the proposed mission a top priority?   A group recently returning from Haiti recounted their experience of seeing mothers carrying infants wrapped in dirty rags and newspapers. Moved with compassion, the mission group purchased blankets and distributed them to the mothers.  The following day the blankets appeared in the shops along the street, sold by the mothers to local merchants.  Discovering the babies still swaddled in filth, the missioners were highly incensed – until it was explained to them that the mothers sold the blankets to buy food for their babies.  Food, not blankets, was the higher priority.  To determine the true hierarchy of need, enough time must be spent among the needy to understand the daily survival pressures they face.  Repairing an inner-city widow’s rotting porch may not be as important as getting her water turned back on.  Adapting our mission to the priorities of the poor is key to redemptive service.
Are the poor capable of doing this for themselves?   The poor are weakened when well-meaning people deprive them of the incentives and rewards of their own hard-won achievements by doing for them what they have the capacity to do for themselves.  As one leader of a micro-lending ministry in Nicaragua lamented when describing the effects of US church partnerships, “They are turning my people into beggars.”  Why get a loan to build their own church, the peasants reason, when the Americans will do it for them?  Predictable by-products of such service include increased dependency, erosion of work ethic, and loss of dignity.  Conversely, indigenous capacity-building is encouraged by joint efforts like co-investing, micro-lending and  reciprocal partnerships.
How will you measure success?   Typically churches evaluate their service projects and mission trips by the number of volunteers involved, the activities performed, and the impact on participating members.  Less attention is paid to the results on the receiving end of charity.  If, however, preserving the dignity and self-esteem of recipients is important to you, then you will want to assess the amount of mutual collaboration, leadership sharing and reciprocity structured into your event.  If your goal is to actually empower those you serve, you will focus less on volunteer activities and more on measurable longer-term outcomes such as leadership development, increased self-sufficiency, and educational and economic advancement.
Is it cost-effective?   The money one campus ministry spent on a spring break mission trip painting an orphanage in Honduras was enough to hire two unemployed local painters, two full-time teachers, and supply new uniforms for every child in the school.  The cost of most mission trips is out of all proportion to the return on investment (ROI) when comparing it against the actual value of the service being performed.  The billions spent annually on such junkets might be justified as a legitimate cost of spiritual development for church members but it lacks integrity if billed as effective mission strategy.  Wise stewardship requires thoughtful assessment of the cost-effectiveness of mission investments.
A few suggestions to avoid mission toxicity.  Mission projects can be genuinely redemptive.  The best ones are joint ventures with mature, indigenous ministries that understand both the culture and healthy cross-cultural partnering.  A few reality-tested principles provide a “code of conduct” to guide invited volunteer guests toward sensitive, mutually transforming relationships:
•  Never do for others what they can do for themselves (teach a man to fish).
•  Limit one-way giving to emergencies (most needs are chronic, not crisis).
•  Employment, lending, investing are best (use grants sparingly as incentives).
•  Subordinate self-interests to the interests of the poor (is this for our good or theirs?).
•  Listen to what is not being said (many needs are not immediately voiced).
•  Above all, do no harm.

God had it planned!

I started my walk this morning and right away a car stopped and pulled over to the side of the road. A gentleman named Howard stepped out and introduced himself.

I was familiar with his face because he had attended a meeting this past Sunday at Northminster. At the meeting I was asked to share some thoughts on generosity as it pertained to Atlee Community Church.

I will go into more detail on that, in a later post.

Howard and I began to walk and get to know each other. He shared some thoughts from this past Sunday and it was so cool to see how much we had in common.

Keep in mind I have never met this man!

He told me that he grew up going to St Christopher's school for several years. The same school that I went to for 13 YEARS! (Kindergarten thru High School)

I asked where he lived growing up and upon his answer I about dropped to the ground!

He grew up on Roselawn Rd, right up the street from where I lived!

I think God was smiling at that moment we made the connection!

God had that point in time planned all along!

I LOVE prayer walking around the Northside! What a blast!

PS I am going on vacation for two weeks and I pray that others will be there in my absence! I know I will be praying from afar!

Momentum - "progress or development that is becoming faster or stronger"

In the past two days, some new folks have joined me on my prayer walk!

Thanks to Ken and Matt for taking the time to join in on what is happening in the Northside!

This journey started in January and I hardly knew anyone. I have been praying for others to join in the prayer walk and I have seen many folks come out and pray! Beth has been my faithful prayer warrior!

I have enjoyed getting to know everyone on this journey. I am convinced that some great things are about to happen in the Northside!

If we can come together to pray, then all things are possible!

God is on the move and I define that as momentum!

Money, Money, Money, Money, MONEY!!!

"For The Love Of Money"

Money money money money, MONEY

Some people got to have it
Hey, Hey, Hey - some people really need it

Hey, listen to me, y'all do thangs, do thangs, do thangs - bad thangs with it
Well, you wanna do thangs, do thangs, do thangs - good thangs with it - yeah

How many of you remember the lyrics from that song?

Well it brings back memories of me dancing or some might remember shagging to it in 1973!

""Shag also refers to a type of partner dance. As such, "shagging" may refer to two people performing the "shag" dance.""

I never knew all of the lyrics to the song till I read them the other day. I just liked the music at the time!

It's all about the money!

How do we spend our money? Is money a bad thing? Can't money help others?

Money can meet someone's needs!

It can help those who are doing a good work!

As the song goes you can do "bad thangs with it" or do "good thangs with it!"

It's up to you to decide.

I have one question!

Whose money is it?

Saturday, June 16, 2012

Give it away!

Acts 20:32-35 NLT

32 “And now I entrust you to God and the message of his grace that is able to build you up and give you an inheritance with all those he has set apart for himself.33 “I have never coveted anyone’s silver or gold or fine clothes.34 You know that these hands of mine have worked to supply my own needs and even the needs of those who were with me.35 And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

Quote from Gordon MacDonald's book:

"Ultimately, the true life of generosity requires trust on our parts... trust that Jesus’ words from Acts 20 are true and that our sacrifices will result in beautiful rewards for us and the recipients of our gifts – sometimes here on earth, and sometimes reserved for us in heaven. In short, generosity comes down to an act of faith in Him who not only first modeled the practice of joyful giving, but also promised the blessings that come alongside."

Generosity Quote

We do not give eternal life (only God does this), but we give that which makes it possible for others to find eternal life. As Biblical people we believe that a solid proportion of our giving should move in the direction of those activities that make Christ known, and help others to know what it means to follow.

The City in need of Prayer!

I just finished a great book about the racial and economic divide in the City of Richmond!

The book is a historical perspective that goes all the way back to colonial times and brings you forward to the present day.

I would highly recommend this book if your interested in reconciliation within our city! I truly have a much deeper understanding of the challenges that our citizens face. 

I am a native of Richmond and have seen the sins of the past, but I want to be a part of the solution going forward!

Thank you Rev Campbell for a great book! Let's all join together to pray for our City!

The fountain of LIFE!

This past Sunday morning was one of those days that I couldn't sleep because of how excited I was!

Let me back up a bit, for months now I have been on a prayer walk around a Church (Northminster) that I knew very little about when I first started.

Every morning I would stop at what has become my favorite spot on the property, the fountain!

I started to pray that the fountain would be revived!

At the time, the fountain was not working and the weeds had overtaken most of the area around it.

The fountain represented life to me!

John 4:13-14
New International Version (NIV)

13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst.(A) Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water(B) welling up to eternal life.”(C)

By now several people have joined me on this prayer walk and have seen the condition of the fountain. 

This past Friday night Sammy (The Pastor of Northminster) approached me and told me to go look at the fountain!

I didn't get a chance to get by there until early Sunday morning! As I made the turn onto Westwood Ave and passed by the chapel I could see the fountain in the distance.

The closer I got, I began to weep like a baby! What I saw was God's hand on that fountain! 

The fountain wasn't even working, there was no cascades, no lights shining on it and no sound of running water. 

What I did see was that it was weedless! All the weeds in the patio dividers were gone! The weeds around the fountain had been pulled!

At this point all I can say is that God was up to something! I had a real sense of excitemnet for what God was doing. For months this fountain was overgrown and stagnant!

There were several times along this journey, that I thought to myself that I should be the one to weed the fountain and make it a better place, but in this case God had another plan and he didn't need me to do the work!

I love how God answers our prayers!

I look forward to the day that I pass by this fountain and hear the sound of cascading waters flowing and the spotlights shining as a beacon!

"a spring of water(B) welling up to eternal life.”

Prayers for the City!

This past Wednesday I had the pleasure of visiting Richmond Hill with my good friend Sammy, Pastor of Northminster Church.

In a meeting with him a couple of weeks ago Sammy had mentioned Richmond Hill to me. I didn't know anything about it. He then offered to take me on a tour.

Sammy was aware of the impact that the book, The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson has had on my life!

If you haven't read it, it's all about prayer and I would highly suggest you read it!

If it wasn't for what God was doing in my life as a direct result of prayer none of these stories from my blog would exist today!

Richmond Hill is located on the top of Church Hill. It has a fantastic view of downtown Richmond! There you will find an awesome ministry that has a lot of history!

One of the main purposes of Richmond Hill is to pray for the City of Richmond. I couldn't believe there was an actually ministry over looking the city, praying for the people!

It really moved me, to know that there are people dedicated to praying for the City of Richmond, THREE TIMES A DAY!

I wish I could be as faithful!

Located in what used to be a monastery, it has beautiful grounds and architecture!

The chapel is a sight to see!

What a great place to have a prayer retreat!

Here is the Mission of Richmond Hill taken from their website.

It is always encouraging to know that others are praying in agreement for the city!

Prayers for reconciliation and the poor are being lifted up!

I think it's time to take my prayer drive around the City!

Are you willing to GO?

This past Monday I visited Good Samaritan Ministries on Hull St in the Southside.

I was invited by a new found friend, Bob who serves on the board.

It was a great time of sharing stories of what God has done in our lives!

We proceeded through the Northside down my prayer drive to Chamberlayne Ave and all the way across the river and onto Hull St.

As we were driving, Bob shared of his upbringing in a Church on Chamberlayne Ave that we passed by.

I couldn't help but dream of what God was up to!

When we got to GSM, I met the founder and director Pastor Mike. He started by sharing his testimony and how the ministry got started. Here was a man that spent years on the streets abusing alcohol and shooting up drugs.

He now runs a ministry that has overseen thousands of men and women who have overcome addictions and tragedies through the love of Christ!

I was so impressed with how this ministry has grown over the years.

There is a Discipleship Program, Thrift Store, Auto Shop, Works Program, Church and even a Christian School for the children that live nearby!

It is so exciting to see how God has used this man!

It gives me great encouragement to see what God can do through an individual who is willing to listen to God and then GO!

I am reminded of the story in Luke where Christ sends out the disciples to share the Gospel.

Luke 9:1-5 NLT 

1 One day Jesus called together his twelve disciplest and gave them power and authority to cast out all demons and to heal all diseases.2 Then he sent them out to tell everyone about the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick.3 “Take nothing for your journey,” he instructed them. “Don’t take a walking stick, a traveler’s bag, food, money,t or even a change of clothes.4 Wherever you go, stay in the same house until you leave town.5 And if a town refuses to welcome you, shake its dust from your feet as you leave to show that you have abandoned those people to their fate.”

When Pastor Mike started this ministry he had nothing! He just went!

Safe Place!

Wednesday night I spent the evening with a bunch of folks from the Northside. A cookout was prepared by a few young students from the neighborhood.

The food was delicious, but the company was even better!

One of the surprises of the evening was when I found out that Raven (a summer intern for Embrace Richmond) who lives in the neighborhood and goes to CNU, actually knew one of my daughters!

My daughter Lucy or Caroline (she can't decide which name she likes best) just finished her first year at Christopher Newport University!

What are the chances? Is it a coincidence or God just revealing himself AGAIN!

The evening was a blast and I was inspired by hearing the desires of the younger generation in the neighborhood.

The common thread in the conversation was the need for a safe place for young men and women to go and just hang out.

They can't even feel safe at home!

The streets aren't safe!

Just the other day a young adult was killed just right up the road.

If we don't invest in our youth today, then there is a strong possibility they will be on the streets tomorrow!

The call to action is to come together and create a safe place for them to go, just be themselves and be LOVED!

It's 9am and what a great day I've had!

I started my day as usual and at about 7:45am I ran into my angel, Geraldine!

Geraldine is the school bus driver in the neighborhood around Northminster. I haven't seen her in weeks because her route has changed a bit.

She is truly a blessing to speak with in the morning! Because of her smile and awesome personality she makes my day!

Then the morning got even better when Cassie from Hands Up Ministries came walking out the front door of Northminster!

She walked across the street and I introduced her to Geraldine. Geraldine then blessed our day and took off on her bus route.

Cassie and I continued our conversation about what was taking place in the Northside. She mentioned that the inspection on her SIXTH house went well!

Hands Up Ministries will soon have SIX Houses that afford people the opportunity to live in a HOME!

I love the fact that such a loving couple as Cassie and JT, have given their ALL to share the Love of Christ with the folks in Northside and Highland Park!

What an awesome ministry that they have going on!

To hear more about their ministry just watch the video on the top of the page called "Muhammad's story"!

Let's dance!

My relationship with God is like a dance!

Just like dancing, someone has to lead and someone has to follow.

I need to let God lead and get out of the way. I don't want to step on Gods' toes, because then I will trip and probably fall over!

I'm learning more and more about Gods' power inside all of us. The Holy Spirit dwells inside us just waiting to teach us how to dance!

Do you believe God can raise someone from the dead? Heal the sick?

End Homelessness in Richmond?

Did the bible say we could do great works?

John 14:12-14 NLT

12 “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. 13 You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. 14 Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!

I just want to learn to dance!

PS I stole this idea from Beth! Sorry Beth!

PSS Thanks Beth!

God had a plan on 1/26/2012!

This past April a van was donated.

A few weeks went by before the actual need was met.

What was the need?

Let me back up a bit.

On January 26,2012 Jeff, Mark, Pete and I went on a tour with Embrace Richmond. We traveled to the projects in Southside called Hillside Court. There we had an awesome time eating lunch together and getting to know some of the folks that live there.

As we left Jeff mentioned one of his favorite stories that he heard at lunch, was the story of a lady that had started a church there. She started out by having dinner and a movie on Friday nights! It is always encouraging to hear how a church gets started.

Back to my original question, what was the need?

The lady that started the church needed a van!

My buddy Charles made the connection and by the end of May, she got a van!

I never imagined this happening back in January!

I love to see how God brings things together, if we are patient!

PS Thanks Barbara!

What are the chances?

This morning I received an email from Wendy suggesting that I take a look at a piece of property on Chamberlayne Ave.

I love looking at possibilities and dreaming about what could be.

Most of the time it is something new that I never thought of. God has a different plan and I need to just get on board with his plan.

Whenever I take a look at property I look up the owners information through the city tax records. I went about my normal routine of due deligence and came across the information I was looking for.

I shared the information with my wife. We both couldn't believe it! What are the chances! 

Does God have a sense of humor or what!

Are there coincidences or just God showing himself to us!

Owner's name = Hookup LLC!!!

PS If you didn't get it look up to the top of the page!

Update! Get ready!

Today is June 1st 2012! Why is this day significant?

It's a day of reflection on what God has done!

Today I went to look back on how far this journey has come in a short few months. I went to February 25, 2012 where I started my first blog post!

So in just three short months a lot has happened!

I started back then prayer walking around a Church, Northminster that I knew hardly anything about. I did know the senior pastor, Sammy.

I had no idea why God would have me there in a strange neighborhood!

As time has flown by God is up to something BIG!

I now have conversations with folks about how to reach out to the neighbors and how to help redevelop the poorest sections of Brookland Park and Highland Park.

Conversations are being had around topics like partnerships, business development, non profits coming together.

More conversations around helping the young adults get jobs and creating safe places for teenagers to hang out.

Churches are working together to reach the lost.

All this out of a deep love for Christ and a calling to get off my butt and get in the game!

There are so many people hurting in the Northside!

In the last three months I have read about three murders that have taken place on my prayer drive through the neighborhood!

I had no clue about any of this three months ago!

God has done so much I can't get it all down on paper, but I have tried to write about most of it through this Blog.

The Northside and Richmond as a whole is about to change!

Let's all get off the couch like myself and start walking with God and watch him do His thing!
