“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust, sweat, and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly so that his place will never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”  ~Theodore Roosevelt 1910

One of the blessings and curses of online presence is the wide array of contact requests I receive, from simple theological questions to deeper inquiries regarding strategy, planning and coaching. Unfortunately, I cannot answer them all!

Time is the most valuable resource any of us have. Once it is spent, there is no getting it back. For that reason, even though I am happy to help you, I also cannot afford to give all of my time away.

For that reason, both to ensure that my hours are spent well on behalf of my family, my congregation and my own goals, and to ensure that you are serious about finding real answers to your questions, time on my calendar is available for a reasonable cost.

You can sign up at any time by using my Calendy page here.

I do reserve the right to cancel any appointment which I deem to be in poor spirit. I am not willing to meet with individuals whose sole goal is to tear me down or extract a pound of flesh. I expect integrity, kindness and respect, even as I endeavor to give it.

The third of four sessions delivered to the students contemplating seminary education at Christ Academy on the campus of Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, IN, during the summer of 2019. 

Taking a break from dogmatic and exegetical theology, we spend on hour on the “practical,” digging into the often-overlooked first-article//fourth/seventh-commandments “natural” law of time, information and personal self-management. “For if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church?” (1 Tim 3:5.)
