Invitation: This image is part of a 3 image series. The other two are titled Segregation and Integration. This title, Invitation, is a metaphor for those willing to look outside of their controlled group, beyond the periphery, and extend an “invitation” to those unlike them.
David and Goliath: The reference may be self evident. Others around us are taller, smarter, richer, and prettier. They may have it all going for them except for one thing…
Integration: As mentioned on the Invitation page, this image is part of a series of three. Integration is about the purposeful act of stepping out of our comfort zone and being willing to help others regardless of color, race, or creed.
Van Gone: This is a play on Van Gogh’s Starry Night painting. In Starry Night the only building in the village that didn’t have any lights on is the church. The story behind his painting is fascinating. I encourage you to read the full account.
12 steps: You may have heard about “12 step” programs that offer support or self help groups for various problems in life. Without the first step the other 11 won’t matter.
Simplify: Due to a set of unfortunate circumstances that occurred in 2002 we were forced to simplify our lives. And, we discovered, life became much sweeter. What do you need to throw off and simplify?
Crossing over: A number of years ago I heard the expression, “If you’re going to cross over you have to take the cross over.” Enough said.
Red, white, black & blue: A number of years ago I heard the expression, “If you’re going to cross over you have to take the cross over.” Enough said.
Vapor: “Life is like a morning fog. It’s here for a little while then it’s gone.” Treasure every moment. Don’t take one for granted. Be thankful, “do justly, love mercy, walk humbly.”
Ascending: For me, one day! How about you?
3001: A Farm Odyssey
Watchmen: There have been many in my life - wife, daughter, parents, brothers, all sorts of in-laws and friends who have been “watchmen” over my life. I wouldn’t be where I am without them.
Splendor: “The heavens declare His glory, the skies proclaim His handiworks. Day after day and night after night they continue to speak without saying a word.” Every day I look up and wonder!
Silos: Too many are being built! No, not that kind. The kinds at work, in politics, and in other aspects of our culture that separate.
Bridges: Not enough of these! See above…
Falling: Falling isn’t failing when we decide to get back up.
Eat at Joe's: This title references the story of Joseph and his brothers when Joseph was ruler over Egypt during a great famine.
Temporary home: If you’ve heard Carrie Underwood’s song by the same name it would make sense.
Rising: The only thing to do after falling.
Be still: Psalm 46:10 - “Be still and know that I am God.” I’m trying!
Title: The Crossing
Welcome home: Many of our sons and daughters that go off to war don’t return home. Or, they return with less than what they had when they left. Let’s welcome them home!
Cottonwood: Did you ever think something as simple as a cottonwood tree at sunrise could produce such beauty? Me neither!
Whisper: It’s not in the thunder, but in the whisper we hear God speak.
Silent: This image was literally captured the Saturday before Easter - or “Silent Saturday.”
Red, yellow, black & white: “... they are precious in His sight.”
Atwitter: That just about describes our culture - yes! Always flitting about here or there. On the go - never taking the time to just "be."
Insignificance: Captured in between the speeding cars on Lake Shore Drive - I’m wondering if this guy is looking out into Lake Michigan and asking - “Does my life matter?” Yes, it does!
Top 10: Are you tired of “top 10” lists? Me, too! Hint - it’s not about lists and who is greater.
Chicago is: "... my kind of town." According to Frank Sinatra
Empty hands fix broken doors: Are your hands empty?
Who is greater:
Love runs deep: Ask me about it. It’s too “deep” for words on a website.
Hope deferred: One of my favorite quotes. “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.” This old house longs to be restored, but it stands next to a “tree of life.” (this house was bought and restored about a year after this image was captured. Hope indeed!)
Keep out or keep knocking: You have those two choices when you come to a road block as this.
Open hearts closed doors: An oxymoron - yes! Like us, we sometimes advertise our hearts are open, when in reality we have a sign in the door saying CLOSED!
Praying hands: Are yours?
Still life: Living with Tourettes - it’s what I hope for one day in this life. If not, at least the next!
Time to reflect: The older I get the more time I have to reflect. I have many good memories.
The way back: The only way back is up.
The Mission remains:
The Book of Eli:
Newtown old values: Taken at Newtown in St. Charles - this is about maintaining those values and principles that never fade with time
Transgressions: The cords have been cut. Why do some insist on dragging them behind.
We all fall down: Sure - no one’s perfect. But I trust in the One who stands in my place.
Inside job: Doesn’t all real transformation start on the inside? If not, it’s just cosmetic and won’t last.
Inside job: BW Doesn’t all real transformation start on the inside? If not, it’s just cosmetic and won’t last.
Idle time: We’re taught, “it’s better to burn out than rust out.” I’d like to challenge that!
Drive in BW:
Rear view mirror: (BW) You can choose to spend your time looking back or looking forward. I choose the latter.
Rear view mirror: You can choose to spend your time looking back or looking forward. I choose the latter.
End of the line: We’ll all end of there at some point sooner or later. Or, is it just the beginning of something new?
Church growth: Look really close. The vine is growing on the inside of the church walls. The church was burned out and has no roof or windows. Growth comes from unexpected places.
Matthew, Mark, Luke, John:
Morning is broken: It has been since the fall. “All creation travails in pain awaiting for its redeemer.”
Newtown old country:
Wild blue yonder:
Dust to dust:
One of four:
1/8: This is a leadership metaphor. The image was captured at ½ second to intentionally blur the face of the men in the scul. Who is the most important? No one! Who is the least? No one! Leadership is about pointing the team toward the goal and getting everyone across the finish line at the same time. If one is out of sync, the team suffers.

On the bench: You have to get in the game! Or, someone else will take your at bat.
