Man Club And Such

By Pete Heiniger
I know you might be introverted, or independent, or carry a wound that keeps you from trusting people. I get it. Me too! The crazy thing is…Jesus knows that too. But, he did something we all need to be aware of…he created all of us to live in community. He...

You’re Not Insignificant

By Pete Heiniger
Do ever feel insignificant? That you don’t matter? Or what you do doesn’t really make a difference? Me Too! Many times we lose sight of how important just the little we have to offer can impact so much. Sometimes we think big non-profits like Compassion are funded by very wealthy,...

Marking Encounters With God

By Pete Heiniger
Okay, I’ll admit it…I’m not good at keeping a journal! Frankly, I suck at it. But, I still believe in keeping track of moments in my life and you should too. When I was a kid in Pennsylvania, my dad taught me to walk through the thick, forested mountains that...

Grandma Lowe

By Pete Heiniger
I grew up part of my life in Elimsport, PA…a town you’ve probably never heard of. It is just over the mountain from Williamsport, PA – which you probably have only heard of if you’re familiar with the Little League World Series. Elimsport was this small, small town that had...

Zoom Out

By Pete Heiniger

Have You Ever Felt Hopeless?

By Pete Heiniger
I used to listen to this song all the time by The Proclaimers called My Old Friend the Blues. The song began like this: “Just when every ray of hope was gone; I should have known that you would come along; I can’t believe I ever doubted you; My old...

Daddy Doesn’t Pray Anymore

By Pete Heiniger
Continuing with the music theme…I’ve been listening to a lot of Chris Stapleton. The song that hit me this week was, “Daddy Doesn’t Pray Anymore.” My dad was a pastor for 47 years. He wasn’t a scholar…he wasn’t a prolific speaker. But, he loved people. He put 100K miles on...

If I Could Kill A Word

By Pete Heiniger
Eric Church’s song, “Kill a Word,” speaks to the idea that our tongues can do a lot of damage. We can make vain promises. We can tear someone to shreds. We can tell ourselves lies with words like “never” and “can’t” – and we can depress ourselves with words like...

Momma, I’m Coming Home

By Pete Heiniger
Times have changed and times are strange, Here I come, but I ain’t the same. Momma, I’m coming home… Ozzy Osbourne I hear this song ring in my ears when I think of the day when I was shopping for gas grills in Home Depot near Ripon, CA – and...
