Digging Myself Out of a Hole

July 2017 marks the 5 year anniversary of our move to Dublin. Over the next few months I’m writing a few posts to share about that journey. You can keep up with all posts in this series here. Earlier this week I wrote about my family’s immediate response to my “I think we are supposed to move to Ireland,” […]

An Old Girlfriend

In yesterday’s post, I mentioned that while we were in Ireland, Liz’s dad had problems with his eyes. After a several days of trying to get care up in Co. Monaghan, one of the doctors referred him to the Mater Hospital in Dublin. So, over the next week Liz and I drove down the M1 […]

The Question

July 2017 marks the 5 year anniversary of our move to Dublin. Over the next few months I’m writing a few posts to share about that journey. You can keep up with all posts in this series here. When we first talked about Ireland, the purpose was so that Liz could go over with her dad and her family. […]

Travel Days

July 2017 marks the 5 year anniversary of our move to Dublin. Over the next few months I’m writing a series of posts to share about that journey. You can keep up with all posts in this series here. I mentioned in the last post that rather than flying directly to Ireland, we flew to London via Iceland. There […]

the Bible Project

One of the Christmas gifts we got for Méabh this past year was the Action Bible. Liz and I have both been amazed with how much she reads it. And she asks such good question too. This morning we spent some time watching videos from the Bible Project with her. Now they are probably a bit […]

How Ireland Popped On Our Radar

July 2017 marks the 5 year anniversary of our move to Dublin. Over the next few months I’m writing a few posts to share about that journey. You can keep up with all posts in this series here. While this summer marks 5 years, since we arrived in Dublin, it is also the 7 year anniversary of our […]

Construction

I had a coffee in town with a friend this morning. And while I always notice it, it hit me the extent to which the city is under construction. All of the construction makes life more difficult for people who live and work here. Inconvenient is probably a better word. As I was noticing all […]

So Why Did We Move Here?

This July marks the five year anniversary of our move to Dublin. I wanted to do a series of posts this summer about our journey; how it came about, what the process and the past 5 years have been like. Stuff like that.

Next week we’ll share some news about the next step we are taking with church planting here in Dublin.

5 Easy Steps to Master any Skill…

…okay, not really. Experts make me nervous. Not people who have reached a level of expertise in their field, but more those who have written a book, or built a large church or ministry and begin speaking at conferences teaching people how to do what they do. I’ve experienced this in fields such as: -prayer […]

Re-seeing Dublin

One of things I love getting to do is show off Dublin to people who come to visit. Whether it is ministry partners from the States, or colleagues in Communitas, having a day or two to walk people around the city and share what we are dreaming is one of my favorite things! Over the […]

Jesus and State Sponsored Torture

As the news has hit over the past day that “torture works” I’ve had an image in my mind. There’s a dark room, with a few strategically placed lights. Perhaps I watched too much 24 (although I instinctively looked away from the screen when ever the torture on that show began.) In this room is […]
