Buckingham and the Bible

Something I've been thinking about.. Marcus Buckingham says the things I noted on this post.

For believers in Christ, how does Buckingham's philosophy square with passages of Scripture like this?
2 Corinthians 12:7-10
"To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong."

Finally... Willow Leadership Summit Notes

After I attend a conference or read a book I sometimes make a busy one-pager of all the most important things I learned. I often put that sheet in a sign holder frame on my desk for a while to keep it "top of mind". Here's the one-pager I just made from this year's Willow Creek Leadership Summit.


Now that's just silly...

I know they are trying to get people's attention with something unexpected... but come on.

Even if it IS silly, kudos to that mayor for taking a risk, though. See Article

Move closer... see each other less?

When we lived in Texas and would come to the Little Rock area for a weekend, in the midst of planning the trip we'd think of making a special point to see extended family and friends.

Now that we live here close to all of those people, we forget to make that same point to see them.

Maybe we can plan a get-together soon...

That's one way to get revenue

I saw this tower behind a church here in Little Rock. I guess all calls made in this sector are blessed by God.

Awesome day yesterday

What a great Sunday yesterday was. Our church went to two services. Lots of newness was rolled out yesterday and there was a "buzz" of new life as we officially moved into the second five years of our church.

Our pastor gave an inspiring message about the different "ports of call" this "ship" known as Mosaic Church has docked at. With the newness of two services and a call to deeper commitment, our church sets sail once again into an awesome future.

Ships don't belong in a harbor, they belong out on the open sea. Here we go!!
