Today is supposed to be my day off, but I'm not very good at that...

I have mens fraternity over the lunch hour and it was awesome. Then worked on a few emails and checked a couple things, went over things for Sunday and next week.

Now I'm wrapping up and going to meet Dara and the kids at the mall in a few minutes!

Quick Update

I cant believe that its almost March!

We challenged everyone at church this weekend to pray 1 hour a week for our city and our church. I committed to pray one hour a day for the same. Man it has been great so far.

So far I'm really having to restructure my time and priorities. Thee next two weeks are probably the busiest Ive had in 2 months! HA But i realize I'm just too busy not to pray!

So I ask you to take up the challenge and pray with me. So far 32 people have committed to pray along side me for the health of our church and for the some 400,000 people in this city who are not connected to a local church.

I believe 100% that the Holy Spirit working through the local church is the hope of the world.

Wont you join me?

Blogging Integrity crisis

Apparently I have one. My last post I said I'd update the next day and I didn't... as you know I didn't for a long time.

So here's the story that rocked me last week.

Tom Jacob's was speaking at a leadership meeting last week. During his talk he told a story of when he was pastoring a church in Sioux City. He had a board member (I think that's how the story went) that was one of the early guys in Gateway computers. The guy oozed leadership. He retired at 31. Tom asked him to meet with him once a week to just pour some of his leadership knowledge into Tom in a mentorship sort of way.

They meet weekly for quite some time, until one day the guy asked to meet in a different location. Tom quickly agreed. They sat down and the guy says to Tom, "Tom what I want to talk about today is something pretty personal I've noticed. Tom, you have an integrity issue."

Most pastors. as Tom did began to play back anything that could be considered and issue. At a loss he asked what?

The mentor looked at him and said, "Its not big things, its the little things. You say by next Thursday you'll do this or that. Its a small trivial thing, but you dont always accomplish it."

That is an integrity issue. Its not just the major things, its all those little things left unchecked, that begins the crack in the dam.

So I have a blogging integrity issue, im going to resolve!

Im in Dallas right now at C3, so I'm not promising a post tomorrow...

Under promise and over deliver.
