Pursue Your Potential: CONNECT

It's the end of the day and I'm just getting around to blogging.  I have been going at warp speed all day.  My day began by speaking for the general session of our district's "Experience" Conference.  I was given the assignment of speaking on the topic of "Experiencing Our Potential to Connect."  I was honored and very excited to speak on this particular topic as it's one of the things I'm passionate about.

With the way communication potential has exploded across the world, we all have the ability to speak into people's lives, and with people at any given moment We are only limited by our own issues of inconvenience, and the decision to connect, or not, is ours.

People are showing up 24/7 these days.  It's up to us to decide if we'll meet them where they're at and join the conversation.  I believe it's not only important for us to "speak into people's lives" but to actually JOIN A CONVERSATION.

A lot of people that we're ministering to these days want and need ministry before they ever step foot in the doors of the church.  I Corinthians 9:22,23 says, "I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.  I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I might share in it's blessings."   

Will we become all things, or will we insist on our traditional means of connection?  That is the question.

I greatly enjoyed bringing this message at Experience today and it was really well received.

In the afternoon, I presented a workshop as well that was requested of me, "Hot and Holy Matrimony."   I'll be presenting it tomorrow as well.  The funniest thing ever happened in this marriage workshop today and I will share it as one of the "True Church Stories" on the blog in the next few days.  Trust me folks, this is one you don't want to miss.
