What is the relationship between light and faith? It’s actually quite amazing…
Faith in real life
Vision is our most important connection to the world around us. In the spiritual realm, there is seeing and then there is seeing. The vision that comes with opening our eyes and heart.
What is astonishing about Jesus in your life?
A lot has to do with proximity…
My new book,
REBOOT: 70 LIFE LESSONS WITH DALLAS WILLARD
Here is what others are saying:
A daily tool intended as a catalyst for life change aimed at the everyday adult and young adult. Along with Dallas’ writings, author Dana Hanson, a long-time student and friend of Dallas, relies heavily on the influence of personal conversations with Dallas and the experiences he witnessed of the model of Dallas’ life for over 12 years. Begun with the purpose of making the work of Dallas more accessible for his own adult children, Dana takes the best of Dallas’ thinking, including some specific concepts and language from Renovation Of The Heart: An Interactive Student Edition, by Dallas Willard and Randy Frazee, and blends this with illustrations from popular culture and his own personal transformation. In clear and concise daily words, Dana invites the reader to join him on this path of transformation, open to the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
“My friend Dallas Willard would love this little book because it is
intended to form rather than just inform the reader. Those who choose
to take Dana Hanson’s seventy day journey will discover that Jesus
truly invited us into an “easy yoke” of daily intimacy with Him.”
—Bill Dwyer, Dallas’ former pastor
“I strongly recommend this series…With intelligence and compassion,
Dana Hanson helps us through barriers to real life companionship with
Jesus in the Kingdom of God now and right where we are.”
—Dallas Willard, author of The Divine Conspiracy on Dana Hanson’s How to Be a Christian Without Being a Jerk
“Dana will take you on a 70-day enjoyable and refreshing tour of some of Dallas’ most thought provoking sayings and introduce you to the wonderful life that Jesus promised. (John10:10b). While written for everyone, this book should be a required tour for college students, in particular incoming freshmen.”
— Lynn Cory, pastor, author of Neighborhood Initiative and the
Love of God, and leader of Neighborhood Initiative
“Dana Hanson, one of the premiere preachers in America today,
leads you through a clear path upward which opens your receptivity
to joy and all things spiritual. Take a “before” picture of yourself before
reading this—you won’t be in the same place afterwards”
— David Housholder, author of Kindle top-5 self help book
The Seven Secrets to a Meaningful Life
What would life be like if didn’t let others set your agenda?
Recent news accounts about this “crisis” in the newer generations when it comes to being active in their faith has everyone scrambling for explanations.
Besides the fact that surveys always depend on how you ask the question and what the questions are, and how the questions are understood, there is someone else who might have a differing opinion on all of this…His initials are H.S.
It is shocking that one of the greatest health risks in our country today is totally flying under the radar. Mental and physical health. From childhood obesity to depression, there is one thing that could make a major difference.
Relax and listen…
We all remember the first words from Psalm 22:
My, God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Jesus cries out on the cross. But, what we don’t often realize is he is remembering a psalm he must have sung countless times, and the end is glorious. Testifying to the greatness of God to countless generations, the last words speak of completion and triumph.
They will proclaim his righteousness, declaring to a people yet unborn: He has done it!
Yes, he has…
The fool says in his heart,
“There is no God.”
The Hebrew word for “fool,” nabal, isn’t about intelligence, as much as it is moral deficiency. Here’s the thing.
God must be hidden enough that we can hide from him. If God is too obvious, then we really don’t have a choice to be in relationship. No free will. We wouldn’t be human the way god designed us.
