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.

    • Wesley Hill: Spiritual Friendship: Finding Love in the Church as a Celibate Gay Christian

      Wesley Hill: Spiritual Friendship: Finding Love in the Church as a Celibate Gay Christian
      Another incredibly helpful book by Hill about following Jesus as a gay person, and how the church can be more helpful.

    • Michael O. Emerson: Divided by Faith: Evangelical Religion and the Problem of Race in America

      Michael O. Emerson: Divided by Faith: Evangelical Religion and the Problem of Race in America
      A troubling but helpful read. any Evanglical Christian who cares about racial inequality in America would do well to read this sociological study. not sure what I will do with it. but advocate somewhere somehow, I must.

    • J.R.R. Tolkien: The Book of Lost Tales 1(The History of Middle-Earth, Vol. 1)

      J.R.R. Tolkien: The Book of Lost Tales 1(The History of Middle-Earth, Vol. 1)
      oh how i am luxuriating in new Tolkien writings (to me). Earliest versions of his vision of middle earth, its God, gods and surrounding world. not for everyone, but sublime for enthusiasts. I still maintain that Tolkien's 'Song of the Ainur' is the most accurate and theologically sound commentary on Genesis 1-3 that exists.

    • Angie Moses: Flying Home

      Angie Moses: Flying Home
      My wife Angie published her first novel a few years ago. #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.
