The Father's Love for Us

By Terry Wardle  |  February 21, 2011
Imagine something with me for a moment. You are looking in on the interaction between a father and his two sons. They are both the same age, one a son by birth, the other a son by adoption.

A Prayer for the Anxious

By Terry Wardle  |  February 14, 2011
Okay. Everyone who knows me can testify that I am a restless guy. Anxiety and anxious care have been constants with me for years, and even now, after much healing, I can fall in that ditch if I am not careful.

When the wounded wounds back ...

I love reading Miroslov Volf. He is a theologian who teaches at Harvard and has written some wonderful books on theology. His writing hits deep and is rooted in real life experiences.

Praying the Promises

By Terry Wardle  |  January 31, 2011
Years back I heard Armin Gesswein say that prayer is most powerful when you pray the promises. That is a life changing principle.


By Terry Wardle  |  January 24, 2011
Amazing. That is the word that comes to my mind as I consider the Formational Prayer seminar we recently completed. I have done this particular seminar at least forty times. Easily. And every time I leave thinking, “this has been the best ever.”

Tracks in the Snow

By Terry Wardle  |  January 17, 2011
So my recent prayer has been that I would be more attentive to the evidence that the Lord is active around my life. You know, "tracks in the snow" kind of stuff.

Earth's Crammed with Heaven

By Terry Wardle  |  January 10, 2011
Snow. Every year I seem to have this moment when an ordinary winter day turns into something special. Something magical. Something unexpected. That's what happened to me today.

Sacrament of the Present Moment

By Terry Wardle  |  January 3, 2011
Sacrament of the present moment. I doubt there is a more important concept for our spiritual and emotional lives. It is in some ways a grounding principle of personal ...

The Very Heart of the Season

By Terry Wardle  |  December 17, 2010
Cheryl and I meet every Wednesday evening with about fifteen seminary students. We eat, talk, look at scripture and pray. We have been doing this since May of last year and their presence in our lives has been nothing short of a blessing.

Papa, you promised.

Perspective. One call immediately changed my perspective on some of the problems I have been moaning about recently.

Dear Lord Jesus

By Terry Wardle  |  October 4, 2010
Dear Lord Jesus, there are times when the struggles seem great. At the very least, tough. Too many, coming too often, bringing too much hassle and grief.

Jesus People

By Terry Wardle  |  September 27, 2010
I was contemplating joy recently and came to a realization. I am most joyful when I am aware of Christ present in me and through me. The most wonderful moments in my life...

Prison Break

By Terry Wardle  |  September 20, 2010
Okay, so there I was, early in the morning, spending time with the Lord. Truth be told, I was not in a happy place. I had been struggling with some familiar, ...

Consider Us Blessed

By Terry Wardle  |  September 13, 2010
Okay, James has done it again. A simple phrase that shouts out the word I need. A challenge. A reminder...

The Outpouring... A Note From Terry

By Terry Wardle  |  September 6, 2010
My heart and mind have been upon The Outpouring of late. Plans and prayers are underway for the November event, and few moments pass by without my thinking ...

Grandfathers get to do such wonderful things

By Terry Wardle  |  July 1, 2010
This past Saturday I observed something that spoke deeply to my heart about love and affirmation. This bunch of seven and eight year old girls are coached by wonderful ...

Outpouring...Give us more!

By Terry Wardle  |  May 18, 2010
The days at The Outpouring were amazing. After a year of prayer, meetings, and a great deal of preparation the days finally came. The Lord did in fact pour out His Spirit upon us. And we soaked. And sang. And praised. And danced. And soaked some more. Many emails have come to me since we ended our time together. The testimonies are thrilling.


By Terry Wardle  |  February 1, 2010
I felt lead to read Hebrews chapter 11. Again. The Great Faith Hall of Fame. What Christian has not turned there for some inspiration and a faith boost? I know I have.


By Terry Wardle  |  January 8, 2010
My New Year's resolution. Snack more. Not a little more. A lot more. I intend to snack every single time it comes to mind. Oh, I still intend to eat regular meals.

The Fullness of Time

By Terry Wardle  |  December 14, 2009
My daughter Cara is soon to give birth. A Christmas baby! Our second Christmas baby. Our youngest daughter Emily was born on Christmas day 23 years ago.

Christ Possessed

By Terry Wardle  |  November 2, 2009
I must admit that I love hanging out with people who are possessed. I try to spend as much time with them as possible. There's an un-definable quality about ...
