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 pic...here 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!

Blessings,
Deanna

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

What Verbal Abuse is Really Like, and Why We Must Care
Guest Post: Terri von Wood

In my speaking travels, I meet the most amazing people. Some are connections that go beyond just a night or a weekend of preac hing. One day on my journey, I met Terri von Wood, and we immediately clicked and have been friends ever since.  Just a reminder that all of our guest bloggers this week are available to chat with you in the comment section here on the blog or on my facebook page where the blog is also published.   *** People who have never suffered through or witnessed abuse (including pastors) often don't know how to help women in abusive situations. Knowledge is power and it is my belief that if the church understood the prevalence of abuse, help would be made available.  First, we must acknowledge that the divorce rate is the same  in the church as in the world.  Second, we must understand that the 50% divorce rate does not include all the women who are abused but stay because they do not know what else to do or do not have anyone to turn to.  If those women we

I am a Spiritual Abuse Survivor
Guest Post: Leanne Weber

I met Leanne Weber years ago through Pastoring Partners Network . She now serves as one of our amazing PPN writers. Back when I first met her she was pastoring and in the midst of an abusive church situation. I as well as several of our other leaders at PPN walked through that painful journey with her and observed her as she went from hurting to whole. She's got an amazing story to share and the following is just part of it. Just a reminder that all of our guest bloggers this week are available to chat with you in the comment section here on the blog or on my facebook page where the blog is also published.             I am a certifiable mess right now. I cannot get any work done, because I don't even want to be here. I am just...tired. I am tired of dealing with church people. If I was truly called, then I'd be able to handle this. I am sick of the only thing keeping me here being the fact that we have bills to pay, and we are finally in a place where we are fi
