  • wunderbare Seite mit Eröffnungsszenen von Filmen und deren Titeln.
  • gute Idee über Symbole, die unsere Werte verkörpern:

    On Sunday afternoon Tracy and I facilitated a training session for our House Church Shepherds.
    At the beginning of the session I handed each one of them an ash tray (97 cents a piece at Wal-Mart) and asked three questions:

    (1) What are you thinking and feeling when you see this?
    (2) Why did I give you one of these as a house church shepherd?
    (3) How can this object work as a symbol to remind us of our mission?

  • Handing out bulletins, directing traffic wearing a bright orange vest, chaperoning a youth function, or changing a diaper in the nursery may be helpful for the church program, but none of it is a task worth giving your life to. Many who struggle to do these things have a nagging unspoken question: “Did Jesus come so I can do this?”

    We must transition from seeing church as a once-a-week worship event to an ongoing spiritual family on mission together. Then people will see church as something worth giving your life for. Honestly, people need one another more then they need another inspiring message. You would be surprised what people will do for Jesus, or for a brother or sister, that they will not do for a vision statement and a capital giving campaign.
