Goodbye 2016 … Hello 2017!


You have landed on this blog for at least one of several reasons:

… a Twitter or Instagram post led you here
… maybe our lives crossed paths somewhere in the world … SoCal • Montana • Colorado • Mississippi • the Pacific Northwest • Bangkok?
… we are related … by blood or marriage
… we’ve served together as colleagues in ministry
… you may have mentored me along the way
… you’re a Dad (Granddad?) leading a family
… you’re leading a church or organization
… you’re a man who follows Jesus

That last one is the most significant! … and the primary reason for this blog post.

The two attachments may help you and those you love and serve to approach this New Year of 2017 with more intentionality … something I believe we all need. The attachments are self-explanatory:

You may choose to ponder the questions alone, or in a group of family and friends. Feel free to pass them along to others who may benefit.

May God pour His richest blessings into your life as you personally reflect on 2016 and prepare for 2017, while leading others to do the same.

P.S.  A quick word about StrongStakes … Isaiah 54:2 has strongly impacted my thoughts about following Jesus. It contains powerful images that speak to our life of discipleship.

“Enlarge the place of your tent; stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, do not hold back. Lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes.”

The primary purpose of StrongStakes is to equip (“strengthen stakes”) and mobilize (“lengthen cords”) men to follow Jesus. This blog is still in the development stage, so check back here in the future for resources to aid you in your life of discipleship.
