ABOUT ME

I'm Dr. Mike Moses, founder and lead pastor of Lake Forest Church in Huntersville, NC.

Open Mike is a forum where I am more open than my sermons, and I interact with you over a fresh imagining of what it means to follow Jesus.

More about me, music on my iPod, favorite links and friends in the blogoshpere.

    Books Beside My Bed

    • Laura Hillenbrand: Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

      Laura Hillenbrand: Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption
      This is on top of my book pile for our beach week this summer. Am I the last man in America to read this? Came back to it after reading the Charlotte Observer's account of his conversion to Christ at a Billy Graham crusade.

    • Willem J. Van Asselt: Introduction to Reformed Scholasticism (Reformed Historical-Theological Studies)

      Willem J. Van Asselt: Introduction to Reformed Scholasticism (Reformed Historical-Theological Studies)
      In discussion with a friend, I decided it would be good of me to refresh my Reformed theological roots by taking in a positive treatment of the aspect of my own theological stream I am the most uncomfortable with - a scholastic approach to understanding and describing God. The first two chapters have been very helpful to correct my own misunderstandings.

    • The New Testament Epistles
      My morning scripture reading is one chapter of a NT epistle per day. Started with Galatians. I simply read a chapter twice through, and pray over whatever Word seems to be for me that day. Usually on the elliptical machine at the gym 3 times a week, or while eating oatmeal on my back porch.
    • Charles A. O'Reilly III: Winning Through Innovation: A Practical Guide to Leading Organizational Change and Renewal

      Charles A. O'Reilly III: Winning Through Innovation: A Practical Guide to Leading Organizational Change and Renewal
      Given to all our pastors by Jesse our Executive Director. Excellent work and thought on how to not let current success or fruitfulness shut down creativity and innovation that leads to future fruitfulness.

    • Orson Scott Card: Earth Afire (The First Formic War)

      Orson Scott Card: Earth Afire (The First Formic War)
      I'm on a sci-fi kick. The second of Card's three prequels to Ender's Game, one of my all-time favorite.

    • Richard Rohr: Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

      Richard Rohr: Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life
      My dad referenced several theses from this book in our shared seminar on 'Following Jesus from the Empty Nest.' When he did, we all leaned and said, 'wow, I want to hear more.' So I'm reading this. Based upon its themes, I gave one to musician Mike Farris during his recent visit to Lake Forest - everytime I see him he's reading something thoughtful, biblical and grace-centered.

    • Kenneth E. Bailey: Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes: Cultural Studies in the Gospels

      Kenneth E. Bailey: Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes: Cultural Studies in the Gospels
      slowly reading this treasure of New Testament studies by a pastor and scholar who spent his entire career in the middle east, is conversant with the rich history of middle eastern Christianity, and helps us pick up on important details that come from cultural cues original readers 'got' (this book gave me the guts of my sermon last December about the manger being in the house of one of Joseph's family members, and that 'inn' meant 'guest room' of that same hospitable house)

    • Angie Moses: Flying Home

      Angie Moses: Flying Home
      My wife Angie just published her first novel! #1 I'm proud of her. #2 It's stinkin' good (tension between dreams and duty for a young mother). #3 This book will never be published and stocked in a 'Christian' bookstore with the picture of a beatific looking prairie woman on the front wearing a bonnet - there's grittiness of real life like happens to real people, and perhaps some grace. #4 This link is to the Kindle version, look below for paperback also. #5 Angie had in mind precisely the type of 'given up on church but not on God' folks we love so much to welcome at Lake Forest as she wrote.
