Theology of Vocation: Priesthood of all Believers

Our Lead Pastor at City Church Eastside, Scott Armstrong, invited me to join him in a six month Vocation Infusion Learning Journey this year. We traveled to four events across the country in six months. We read books, deepened our learning and saw how others bring this deeper understanding to life in their churches.

Join us for a twenty minute dialog on what we learned on this journey. See how your work is a calling from God just as sacred as any work in the church or nonprofit world. Enjoy.

Mile High Gliding from Gregg Burch on Vimeo.

Mile High Gliding

For my birthday, Genie gave me an hour long flight in a glider over the Front Range near Boulder. It was something I had wanted to do for 20 years, yet, when she booked the flight I had second thoughts. The reality of being towed up to 10,000 feet and cut loose without an engine made me a bit nervous. When I saw the plane, a bit of a beater many years old, my confidence did not increase. I found the limits of my courage, but pushed through and flew high up over the cabin and the Indian Peaks. Incredible experience, but I believe I have scratched that itch. See the photos here.

Theology of Vocation

I am taking part in a learning community with Scott Armstrong, our lead pastor at City Church Eastside to look at how we can bring a deep theology of vocation to our community. Most churches don't equip their people to live out their faith at their work. Check out this short video that illustrates this point.

Eagle Peak Sunset from Gregg Burch on Vimeo.

Sunset on the Divide

19 men came to the mountain last Thursday for our third Manmaker Leadership Retreat. Our topic was Biblical Masculinity, and we used a book called Men of Courage by Larry Crabb. We cooked beef tenderloin on the grill as we sipped craft brew, spirits and wine. Then, we took the guitar over to the Mountain Hytte to sit around a bonfire. Here is a video clip of the waning light of sunset over the divide.

Moab Sunset Hummer Tour from Gregg Burch on Vimeo.

Moab Sunset Hummer Tour

We spent three days touring Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. While we were there, we took a Sunset Hummer Tour of the Hell's Revenge 4x4 trail. Found out we were the first tour of the season. We were the only ones signed up. Incredible to see where a Hummer can go (and where it can't). The video is almost 8 minutes. If you don't find it as mesmerizing as i do, be sure to look at the sunset at the end. Enjoy.

Video of Flyfishing with 900 lb Brown Bears on the Brooks River in Alaska

Ever since we saw Thomas Mengleson's photo 20 years ago of a Bear catching a Salmon at the top of Brooks Falls we have wanted to see this place. In August, we traveled with Norwegian friends to spend a few days fishing for Rainbow Trout amongst the Brown Bears feasting on Salmon. Check it out. See photos and narrative here.

Tragic Cost of Non-Discipleship-David Platt

I've often thought of the cost of discipleship, but what about the cost of not choosing discipleship? Hadn't thought about it that way before. Thanks, David Platt.

Riding homw from Estes Park the other day and about a dozen wild turkeys were slowly crossing the road in front of us. Turkeys are reknown for their keen vision, they are very hard to hunt, as I hear from my friends.

A Snog Rolls In

When fog rolls in here at 9000 feet in the winter, the cloud descends, and when it rolls out, we have a fresh blanket of snow. That's why we call it a snog. This one brought 5" of freshies to the cabin. Take a look.

Yellowstone from Gregg Burch on Vimeo.

Yellowstone in the Fall

Enjoy our trip up to Yellowstone for the second time this year. We saw wolves again this trip. We could also get to many of the geysers and hotsprings that were inaccessible last winter. If you want to see the wolves, go soon. Many of the collared wolves have wondered across the park boundary and been shot by hunters. The alpha female of the Lamar Canyon Pack was killed this winter. We saw her on our trip. See the rest of the photos here.

Moose at Brainard Lake

We went up to Brainard Lake on a picnic with our grandkids and stumbled upon a Bull Moose browsing in the bushes by the lake. We think he is part of the family that browses in our meadow during the winter. The snows up here in the Indian Peaks Wilderness are three feet deep all winter, so the moose come to lower elevations to winter, along with the elk and deer. Our meadow is at 9000 feet. Brainard Lake is 10,000 feet, and five miles away. See video of a female in our meadow last winter along with photos here.

Fascinating interview with Diana Butler Bass

Bass suggests we are at the cusp of the end of church and religion as we know it. A spiritual awakening is dawning, and will disrupt many of the existing paradigms. I can't wait.
