Welcome from Mike

Hi there! Thanks so much for coming to UnderTheOverpass.com. Chances are that you've read Under the Overpass, or someone has told you about my friend Sam's and my intentional journey on the streets of six different American cities as homeless men. Either way, I'm excited that you're here.

Whether you're wanting more information about our journey, or have some thoughts you'd like to share with the rest of us, or want to check out some video footage from our time out there, you'll be able to do all that here at UnderTheOverpass.com. Specifically, though, I'm hoping that this website will do three things:

  • Connect: UnderTheOverpass.com is meant to be a place where you can connect with different people who have read Under The Overpass and felt the Lord move or lead them powerful ways. Use the Bulletin Board feature to post ideas / comments / reflections, see other people's comments and testimonies about how the Lord is moving in their life, or learn more about Sam's and my journey through the streets of those six American cities.
  • Empower: God wants to use each of us in very real ways as we live our lives for Him. What are some of the ways that God may be asking you to get connected with other people or to make a difference in this big world we live in? Want to get connected to some local Rescue Missions and find out how you can help out? Go to the Rescue Missions page and check it out!
  • Learn: Curious about what I'm up to these days? Check out the Journal section of the website for my latest blog / journal posts.

Have a good time looking around here at UnderTheOverpass.com, and, if you want to, help spread the word by directing others this way too.

Grace and Peace.

Hope you can check it out!

Why I Haven't Been Blogging Much Lately...

I've not been blogging much lately. And I'm sorry about this. A lot has been happening, and I (perhaps) should have been.

But as far as excuses go, I think I have a pretty good one...

I'm human. And thus limited. All of the creative energy I have (and then some, depending on how much caffeine I've had that day) is being given to a new book project. My deadline is the end of the year, and while that does sound like a good amount of time (almost 3 months, Whew!) the reality is that it is approaching much faster than I'd like.

"What's the project?" You might ask.

What I can tell you at this point is that it's a book about spiritual practices, a memoir of spiritual discipline, in fact. I'm really excited about it, though I am finding it challenging to put into words everything I'm hoping to communicate (don't all writers feel this way?)

It is being published by Thomas Nelson, and will be coming out in 2014.

Thanks for your patience with me as I focus on writing this new book. I hope to return to blogging soon!

Grace and Peace.
