What if you truly loved...

mhgs what no. 2 from blaine hogan on Vimeo.

The content of this video is the reason that Mandy and I packed up all our belongings, kissed our friends goodbye, and left all that had been comfortable for 8 years to move across the country. We honestly believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ really can be 'good news' to the world. We truly believe that the life, death, and resurrection of the Prince of Peace, the Son of God, can radically change the world in all economical and social and spiritual and political ways. If we didn't believe this way, we would be foolish to give up all we had for this life of the unknown. We have no idea where this crazy journey will take us and we invite God to move and shape our path.

So far I have had 2 of these people as professors in class, Dan and Dwight. This video only captures a glimpse of the depth, intellect, and passion that the professors at MHGS have for the ministry of redemption and reconciliation. I am truly blessed to be studying here in Seattle at this school. I thank God each day for this opportunity.


  1. What a great video, but more importantly what an amazing place to learn and experience what it means to love.

  2. Thank you for sharing this video. Thoughts are provocative as well as inspirational. With Christ the King Sunday coming in a few weeks, this video is another resource as I prepare the message for that Sunday. We have the capacity to change the world. What we lack is the courage to do so. If our faith were indeed deep, abiding, and strong, the courage to speak out, to be in a sharing dialoguing relationship would come naturally. I so appreciate the opportunity to learn through your learning. Keep it coming!
