written by Leona Bergstrom, Director, Re-Ignite Easter weekend is when Christians memorialize the death of Christ and celebrate his resurrection. Saturday is a particularly perplexing day. Sandwiched between a dark and solemn Good Friday service and the glorious dawn of Easter morning, Saturday is when communities hold lively egg hunts; offer photo ops with the [...]

Third Calling People

Third Calling people are those, who are willing to move, to dance. They aren't afraid to follow and they are not timid to lead. They are ready to boogie. Third Calling people are leading-edge Boomers. They are the "Do-Bees," kids of the 50s and 60s, revolutionaries, and some hippies. They are called to something more [...]

Purposeful Perseverance

A Large Amount of Gratitude

Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude. (From Winnie the Pooh by AA Milne)  I’m envious of Piglet. Even though small, his penchant for giving thanks fills his little heart and life. Since I have six grandchildren, I read a lot of Winnie [...]

I love the challenges presented by the fall season as children head back to school and ministries start new programs. The air is electric with anticipation and hope. The autumn also is the time for [...]
