Can You Really Forgive And Forget?

Six years ago my then-wife said to me the most devastating words you can say to your spouse: “I don’t love you anymore.” A year later I received papers in the mail and at 28 years old, I was divorced. I was broken beyond anything I had ever experienced. Over the next couple of years I […]

Daddy Issues: Forgiving Our Father

I was cut off the other day in traffic. I had to hit my brakes to stop from hitting the guy in front of me. He didn’t even notice and as I went around him, I looked over and he was looking down at his cell phone. I was annoyed to say the least but within […]

Daddy Issues: A Story of Forgiveness

We all have daddy issues of some sort. Fathers have a tremendous responsibility and unfortunately, none of them are perfect. We’ve all lacked in one way or another be it in the form of provision, protection or identity.

Amnesic Grace

I don’t shave much. Consequently, I don’t buy razors very often. There are times when I go months between shaving.

These go dull pretty quickly but inevitably, I still try to […]

Double Jeopardy

I am no legal expert. The majority of my legalese comes directly from movies and TV. But every once in awhile I learn a bit of legal jargon that makes sense in my life and I can drop it in conversation. Then I’m pretty much like Tom Cruise cross examining Jack Nicholson in A Few […]

On Grace, Forgiveness & Second Chances

Second chances are a hot topic right now. President Obama has been in the news for commending the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles for giving Michael Vick a second chance. Ted Williams, the homeless man with the golden voice, has been given a second chance at life by way of a video of him going […]

Conditional Grace

I am POTSC. It feels good to say that. Sometimes I even get a little twinge of pride when I wear my wristband. I am a radical grace giver!

People of the Second Chance is a fantastic organization led by Mike Foster and Jud Wilhite. Their goal is to give a voice to a scandalous awakening of radical grace in life and leadership. Their 3 core principles are to 1) Give a second chance 2) Receive a second chance 3) Be a second chance.
