– Here's some extra Sunday stuff…
– We had Mr. Softee at our services serving soft ice cream. Holy cow! This guy has the best soft ice cream on the planet!
– The band played "Desert Song" by Hillsong United.
– One of the things that I love about our band is that they don't just cover a song, they make it better.
– When I hear our band's version of a song first, I'm always disappointed by the original. These guys are that good!
– I dropped by Kindle. And no, I'm not happy about it. I'll be testing the Amazon.com customer service department tomorrow.
– I'm really glad "The Office" is back.
– Looking forward to my next coaching network session on Thursday. Love the guys in this network!
– We're talking church governance (a non-sexy topic, but hugely important), stewardship follow up, and developing a strategic plan. It's going to be a packed session for sure!
– I love leaders who are committed to growing. Leaders who think they know it all drive me nuts.
– By the way, we just released a brand new resource over at www.church-strategies.com called, "The Productive Pastor". It's 24 principles for getting more done in less time.
– This is a resource that I've been writing for months. I'm so happy that it's out. I think it's one of our strongest resources yet!
– I'm glad my favorite shows are back on TV. Even though I haven't watched a Red Sox game in 3 weeks. 2 kids in the house has eaten some of my "baseball" time.
– Finished 2 books this week: The E-Myth Enterprise by Michael Gerber. Its not my favorite book of his, but he has some points that really got me thinking. If I can get 4-5 ideas out of a book, I'm a happy man.
– I'll be reviewing it in this week's www.church-strategies.com newsletter. You can subscribe for free here. It goes out Tuesday mornings.
– The 2nd was "The Lost Symbol" by Dan Brown. It was a very good story. I didn't like where we landed, but then again, it's fiction not systematic theology.
– Did I mention my Kindle is injured? It hurts me just to think about it.
– Got an email from a Pastor in New England who's been Pastoring for over 40 years and wanted to tell me how much he loved Zero to Sixty. I'm humbled and honored.
– Have a great week!
