I’m excited to lay out the principles of intentional living in the next few weeks at RDC in our fall 2016 series, “And, then . . .

 Without intentionality, the stuff of life often crowds in, leading to a flatline existence.

A flatline existence is basically getting through the days without fully living.  This kind of life opens the door to what the Ecclesiastes writer asked:

    What good does it do anyone to work so hard again and again,
        sun up to sundown? All his labor to gain but a little? (Ecclesiastes 1.3, Voice).  

Without intentional meaning and purpose, the answer clearly leads to the flatline existence.  A shift in how life is perceived and managed must occur in order to live the best life, above and beyond the flatline, within the realm of the “more of God.”

And, then . . . when we enter into the “more of God” . . .  the day’s possibilities are endless.

This old house is less than a minute from where we live . . . a cool place for our family pictures . . .a place that tells a story.


This is part of a section on the front of the house . . . perfect for the backdrop of the message, “And, then . . .”
