This is week one of Forty Days of Purpose I’ve modified it with a survivor theme to run off of Survivor Cook Islands.
Sitting on the beach on an island in the middle of nowhere with 19 other people who wished you weren’t there. And all you can think is “What on Earth am I Here For?” It wasn’t that long ago that life was different, more comfortable more fun and now all you have is the island, your “Team” mates ...read more

This is week two of 40 Days of Purpose using a survivor theme.
A Ukulele, a songbook, a Frisbee, a toothbrush, a deck of playing cards, a guitar, bongo drums and a bible. Kind of a strange collection, but they all have one thing in common. They were luxury items that contestants from early episodes of survivor were allowed to take with them into the ...read more

This is week six of Forty Days of Purpose and deals with Purpose number 5 evangelism.
Drop your buffs. I wasn’t sure at first what I was hearing then I realized that what host Jeff Probst of Survivor was telling the contestants to do was to remove the scarves that identified each of four tribes that made up the competition in this season’s Survivor. After only a week on the island ...read more

This is the closing message for Forty Days of Purpose using the Survivor theme
There is a sense of finality to the scene in Survivor when Jeff Probst walks over to someone’s torch, says, “The tribe has spoken” and snuffs out the persons flame. There is a sense of finality when as believers we see another believer whose life style is in direct contradiction to the commands of ...read more
