What do I Bring to the Table?

What do I bring to the table. Here are some of the clichés and play on words I have heard over the years:   Am I  a faucet or a drain? Do I add to others or subtract from others? When people leave me are they refreshed or do they feel depleted? Do I add [...]

Leaders Lead Through Change

I was with a group of church leaders a few months ago and they were all given reports on how their churches were doing. They all shared how in March of 2020 when then, almost all churches were forced to discontinue meeting publicly and forced to go online. Almost bar none, ever leader I spoke [...]

Integrity

Integrity! One aspect of integrity is just being there and doing what I said I would do. Consistently!   I like my diesel Jetta – starts every time and purrs as I roll down the highway – consistently! I like my Think Pad – boots every time and runs the small amount of programs that [...]

Future Needs Require Action Now

Bonnie and I watched an excellent movie last night. It took place in arid CA and the main character, new to the area, went to an all-purpose store and asked the owner what kind of plants grew in this hot dry climate. The owner said, “You don’t want a plant. The ground is too dry [...]

We’ll Figure it Out

2020 has proved to be a very challenging year in that there were many twists and turns throughout the year that caught all of us unprepared. We were placed into situations and forced to make decisions on things that we had no control over. The opportunity to allow fear, anxiety or confusion to come into [...]

Representing Him

The amazing Christmas season! For God so loved He gave….. Hard to image the depth of God’s love to the degree that it was manifested over 2000 years ago in the town of Bethlehem. He came to earth with the sole intent and purpose to reunite mankind to the relationship He always desired. He cared [...]

Who Do You Look Like?

Not too long ago one of our grandsons turned 7. His dad, our son, showed him a picture of himself when he was seven years old. Our grandson looked at it thoughtfully and said, “Dad, when did you take this picture of me? I don’t remember it?” “No, this is a picture of me when [...]

Nuisance or Building Blocks

Interruptions! Life’s interruptions are most times considered a nuisance! I could accomplish so much more without them. Even the term qualifies itself as something that stops me from doing what I was doing, heading in a direction I was heading, on toward a goal that I was pursuing, focusing on or trying to accomplish. The [...]

When It’s Calm

I have a placard on the wall at my desk that says “Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm”. It takes extraordinary leaders in the storm tossed waters we currently find ourselves in. But that is why you are in the position you are in. “For such a time as this!” The [...]

Offense or Defense

Offense or Defense?   The other day as I was thinking on the events being played out around us, the chaos, the violence, questioning what is truth and what is distorted, feeling like the enemy is really attacking some areas, I felt the Holy Spirit say this: Remember, the Kingdom of God is always on [...]
