Nuns can be blackbelts

07 Jun 2017, Posted by silentimages in Blog

Ok, so imagine you and a nun are walking down a dangerous street in Honduras. Suddenly a gang ambushes you. You’re paralyzed with fear. You pray for deliverance. But fear not! God has provided a nun, who can do all things through Christ who strengthens her round-house kick! Ok,…

Time to Reflect

25 May 2017, Posted by silentimages in Blog, Refocus

I’m sure most of you can relate to the feeling of being too busy. “I wish I had more hours in the day to get the things done that need to get done.” Have you ever said that or thought that? I sure have. Two…

So you want to start a non-profit?

My friend who has adopted a child, told me that before someone adopts, he first tells them all of the reasons they should not adopt. Sounds crazy, but he has a reason. He does this just to make sure they realize the magnitude of the commitment…

Discovery in South Sudan

03 Mar 2017, Posted by silentimages in Africa, Blog, Refocus

I spent the past few days in a refugee camp in South Sudan. Personally witnessing the hurt that daily accompanies these people felt nightmarishly surreal. Distinguishing between cultural preference and poverty is difficult in any developing country you visit, but the hardest part for me…

Building a Fire in Burma

07 Feb 2017, Posted by silentimages in Blog, Refocus

As a young boy, I remember building my first fire. It was exciting to watch it grow hotter and hotter and then bigger and bigger. In my adult years, it would become a place of gathering friends for conversation and would provide warmth for those…

Where are the leaders?

20 Dec 2016, Posted by silentimages in Blog

People often ask me my observations of the world after my travels.  I often come home with mixed feelings about global leadership. This morning, I wanted to share an encouraging reflection about the kind of leaders we observed in 2016.   At first glance, it appears…

Lost in Cuba

09 Dec 2016, Posted by silentimages in Blog

This one time, I got lost in Cuba… Luckily I was given the name of a pastor who would “find” me at the airport… Thankfully it isn’t much of a challenge to find the one white American walking off the plane. So I have this sweet, sweet…

Starting Fresh

02 Dec 2016, Posted by silentimages in Blog

I’m sure we can all remember the feeling, walking into a new classroom for the first time, with your brand new backpack, new shoes, new outfit – looking around at the other students and wondering if you are going to fit in. Will I make…

Directing, Food Poisoning, and Burma

28 Oct 2016, Posted by silentimages in Blog

Stepping out into the uncomfortable can be really, well, uncomfortable. Two days of travel can really wear on ones lower back. But finally I made it to Burma, also known as Myanmar. This was to be my first “Big” project and big it was. Thats…

Holding Grace

21 Oct 2016, Posted by silentimages in Blog, Refocus

“I will see ya at the gun shop.” These were the last words Lamard said to me as we parted ways on the 8th floor of Novant Hospital uptown. Lamard, a tall, black, male with dreadlocks down his back and a grey hoodie pulled over…

Lessons Learned in Canada

14 Oct 2016, Posted by silentimages in Blog, Refocus

As I ride passenger side, through the fall-turned leaves, I contemplate on how different Toronto looks and feels compared to Charlotte, North Carolina. During my time in Canada, I learned that Canadians really do say “Eh?”, they completely and full heartedly love their hockey, and…
