District Council ~ Day 2

It's so wonderful to be here. Glorious, in fact. I am enjoying my time at District Council so much, at both the Galleria Palms, the services and seeing my friends. As the song says, "life is precious, life is sweet!"

This morning Misty and I decided to sleep. :-) Now that's precious. Sleep, glorious sleep. Both of us have been working very hard lately and in need of some extra rest. As time has gone on and I have lost absolutely 100% of any inkling for political things, district business meetings have lost any luster they once had. So our guys went on to the business meeting and we got a little extra sleep and then headed to the women's meeting. It was a wonderful morning/afternoon. Marsha did a fantastic job. Preacher extraordinaire. Also, the more time I spend with our children's pastors (Trinity and Misty) over the years, the better it gets! I tell you what, if you cut these people open they would bleed loyalty. As anyone knows in ministry, this is not always easy to find. And aside from the loyalty factor they are just FUN, so fun. We are blessed, blessed, blessed. The more time I spend with them, the more I adore them. You've heard me talk about them a lot but in case you've never seen their they are. :-)

The only thing that makes me sad is that they're not in my district, lol!! Seriously, they've got to come to the next national CMA Leadership conference so I can meet some more awesome fellow CP's :o).

It's a blessing to have faithful people working with you for the same cause - Pastor Larry and you truly deserve them - God rewarded your faithfulness with faithfulness!

Hi! I've been reading your blog for a little while. I can't remember how I found it, but after seeing your link to Stuff Christians Like, I decided to read more.

I just had to comment on this one--is Misty a Mizzou alum? I am one, and just wanted to give a little shout out. :o)

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and for your faithfulness to the body of Christ!
Misty is from Missouri, but she is a CBC Alum.

Thanks for reading!

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

Why You Should Never Hijack a Comment Thread
Social media etiquette 101

One surefire way to kill your influence in social media and wear out your welcome fast is to become involved in derailing somebody’s comment thread with your own agenda. Networking and hijacking aren’t the same thing. It’s surprising how many people don’t understand that this is a guarantee for tearing down a platform as quickly as you build it. Passion is good, even necessary. I appreciate people's zeal for their personal core values. What is not appreciated is the attempt at a redirection of a comment thread when the comment has little or nothing to do with an original post or is twisted at best. Social media provides ample opportunity for all of us to share what’s important to us on our own platform. Eliciting others’ responses and developing connections largely depends on our ability to communicate and compel. Some people are open to receiving private communication from others although they aren’t always able to answer personally or at length. But hijacking a comment threa
