Great post. It's an honor to be one of your "sponsoring" churches by praying for you.

Love you brother!

I liked this article. Made me stop and think about where my joy comes from and if I truly have found it yet. Or on the other hand, knowing where true joy does come from and being too consumed with my own desires, that I have yet to embrace it.

Joy is the pieces, not the whole. Take hold of it with both hands like a friend you've missed too long. Thank you for the joy you bring my friend.

Great post, Tim. Love the story ... and the conclusion that you come to. Right on with Augustine, we can even take good things...very very good things...and make them idols. Looking forward to having you back.

Welcome to CGO

  • Welcome to Common Grounds Online. Readers of Common Grounds have suggested a website to continue the explorations they began in the book. In keeping with the interactions of Professor MacGregor, Brad, Lauren and Jarrod, the theme of this site is ‘learning and living the Christian story.’

    I have invited friends, and a few friends of friends, to communicate aspects of the Christian story that have been significant in their own lives. We’re all trying to find joy and pleasure in this life and the next, but often we forfeit the joy that could be ours by living out foolish, competing scripts. What distinguishes Common Grounds Online Contributors is not our own goodness, achievement or service, but rather the recognition of our need of God’s grace abounding in our lives.
