When I was a child and my family would go into a store with fragile merchandise, my father would say, “look with your eyes, not with your hands.” He knew me well. But I knew what every young child knows: that in order to truly see an object you must touch it, squish it, pick at it, toss it in the air, or hit your brother with it. Interaction is a much better tool of observation that merely “looking.” My father knew this, but he simply didn’t want to pay for the merchandise that I would break. Let me ask you something, do you know this? Do you know recognize what is ingrained within every 5 year old? That interacting with something is a great way to “see it”? If you understand this, then you will understand The Well.

The Well is about activity and maturity through obedience; not maturity through mere intellectual saturation. The scriptures do not point to the mind as the rudder of the ship, but to a more sensory organ: the tongue. We pursue Christ like we’re in gym class, not math class. Where many Christians live in a “learn with your ears not with your hands” approach to growth, I want to tell you to “learn with your senses not with your psyche.” Rodney Clapp writes, “Christian spirituality is kinesthetic spirituality.” Obedience is not mental gymnastics. Here at The Well we practice obedience and disciplines in a whole-hearted abandon to a consummation of learning (discipleship). We act; and we encourage others in active habits of spiritual formation.

When we would go into a store

When I was a child and my family would go into a store with fragile merchandize, my father would say, “look with your eyes, not with your hands.” He knew what every young child knows: that in order to truly see an object you must touch it, squish it, pick at it, toss it in the air, or hit your brother with it. Interaction is a much better tool of observation that merely “looking”. My father knew this, but he simply didn’t want to pay for the merchandise that I would break. Let me ask you something, do you know this? Do you know recognize what is apparent to every 5 year old? That interacting with something is a great way to “see it”? If you understand this, then you will understand The Well.

Doing back math works in algebra, but it doesn’t work in spiritual development

Democracy is not the solution!

Applying what we learned from Iraq to the socio-economic development of America

We think that democracy is a tool of progress for people, where it may be merely a tool of maintenance
