In Transit

  A Timely Message From My Baseball Cap Reminds Me To Loosen My Grip On This World When I’m meeting strangers in a public place for the first time, I’ll often help them recognize me by stating, “I’ll be wearing a black ball cap.” Those who know me well might nod in recognition at the

Kanye West’s Story Reveals An Unmistakable Fruit Of The Gospel

  “So dad, have you heard about what’s going on with Kanye?” my millennial son asked me recently. He excitedly relayed the eyebrow-raising account of Kanye West’s conversion, discipleship relationship with a credible pastor, and the imminent release of an album titled “Jesus Is King.” His interest was piqued partly because much of this

Transition

My church's response to adversity provides a blueprint for personal transformation This week marks my transition from the relative stability of church-based pastoral work to the walk-by-faith world of entrepreneurial ministry. Like most ending a long season of church work, I’ve done my share of navel-gazing in an attempt to understand and quantify how God

Our Bodies, Our Stories

David Bush with Joe Tewell “I don’t know if I can do this!” Marci confessed as she retreated to a bench. We were just halfway through her second session warm-up and things were already unraveling. I didn’t want a scene in the crowded fitness center, but it was against my nature to let someone fold

Victim, Survivor…or Hero?

In just the past several weeks, we’ve been shocked by stories of man versus beast encounters at a zoo and a popular theme park. In separate incidents, an entertainer is gunned down during a post-concert meet and greet with fans, and 49 people at a nightclub are killed in a horrifying mass murder. Record floods

Me Before You

  Ever since the trailer for Me Before You began showing months ago, my wife has been telling me “we’ve got to see this movie!” She didn’t need to twist my arm, as I routinely surrender my man card to view “chick flicks.” This story seemed witty, compelling, and different than most, so I was

Health, Medical Costs, and the Vanishing Role of Personal Responsibility

  I live in Iowa, home of the first-in-the-nation presidential caucuses (our version of a primary). For many election cycles, it has fallen to Iowans to winnow the field of presidential candidates from both political parties. Because of the oversized strategic impact of the Iowa caucus results, political action committees and lobbying groups descend on

What God Does While He’s Wasting Your Time

It was July of 1985, and I was spending my second summer in a row in Tokyo, Japan. My two summers of music ministry on Japanese college campuses and in public venues was a welcome change from how I’d spent most of my first two years in full-time music ministry with an international missions organization.
