Monday Wake Up

It was a bit of a crazy weekend. We launched our sixth campus at Park. It seems like the preparation for launching a campus has become a bit customary at this point, but it never loses it’s excitement when we can stand worshiping with the body of believers in a new church that was not […]

Monday Wake Up

One of the reasons I love living in Chicago is because there is never a lack of something to do, and it’s usually all within a 4-5 mile radius. This past weekend Amy and I enjoyed some opera in the park, for free! I’ve never actually experienced live opera before, but it was actually quite […]

Monday Wake Up

Happy Monday! I was sick 2 days last week, and it’s always funny how I take my health for granted, until I get knocked out by a bad cold. Obviously, there are things much worse than a cold, but it’s still rough when it puts me out for 2 days. Thankfully though, I was able […]

This weekend I was reminded of the great people that God has placed mine and my wife’s path. Always remember to be in relationship with other people. It’s the only way that we can grow in our love for one another and our love for Christ. My wife was also kind enough to sit through […]

This past week was another busy one. We were a satellite host for the Global Leadership Summit, which meant that I got to sit in on all of the sessions, and hear some pretty amazing speakers!

I can’t believe it’s already July! The past month I’ve been doing a bit of traveling, while also having the honor to be a groomsmen in 3 of my friends’ weddings. In the last month I’ve been in Iowa, Tennessee, and California. Each wedding was a blast, but thankfully I get to spend a couple […]

Monday Wake Up

Summer isn’t officially here yet, but it started to feel a bit like summer here in Chicago over the weekend. I took ol’ blue (my bike) out for his first ride of the season and it was absolutely glorious. There is no rush quite like the one you get when you’re on a two-wheeled moving […]

Monday Wake Up :: I’m 25

Well, this is a momentous Monday Wake Up post, because today I turn 25 years old. I keep telling people that this feels different from every other birthday in my 20’s thus far. I guess because it’s a quarter of a century. I’m halfway to 50 years old. I feel older for the first time […]

Wedding season has begun in the Burns household. We attended our first wedding last weekend, which was the first of 8 for the summer, and I’m a groomsman in 3 of them. Talk about a busy summer. But it’s an exciting time in our lives when many people we are close to are entering into […]
