Potential

I wanted to share a post with you that I wrote for our Worship Arts Ministry at our Church: Tonight, for the opening session of the retreat at Cannon Beach Conference Center, Dr. Rod Stafford shared a synopsis of “The Princess and the Goblin.” The basic premise of the story is that a grandmother tells her granddaughter to follow a thread wherever it leads. At the end, she the thread will lead to grandma. It may not seem like the path...

Been a little busy…

It seems that every year I write a post like this. I should just copy and paste from previous years! However, I just wanted to let you all know that we are still here. Kevin & I have both been busy this Christmas season. We both had Christmas productions as well as regular weekend services and Christmas Eve/Day services. I hope our absence of content for the past month or so only reinforces who we are in your minds! As we have...

Got Cliche?

Got Cliche?

Not too long ago, I was driving and saw a bumper sticker that was “borrowing” from the very popular “Got Milk” ad campaign. It said “Got Hope.” It was a political bumper sticker, and it drove me nuts. Not because of the political agenda, but for two other reasons. The first being it was an idea that got burned into the ground a few years ago. The times are different, the message should be too. But...

Lead Now, or be led

I’ll be the first to admit, leading is hard. And when you have to always be leading, it’s hard to always lead. You know what I mean. Sometimes it would be nice to just let it be, but we’re leaders. As you may (or may not) know, I’ve recently moved into a new leadership position. I’m in a position that hasn’t had a full-time person leading for quite some time. There were some part-timers doing parts...

Get the Evangelism Monkey off the back of Worship

He’s a cute little guy. But he sure can cause a lot of problems. Don’t get me wrong. Evangelism is what we’re all about. YES, we want to be relevant. I agree completely! But….(and you knew it was coming)…..evangelism cannot ride on the back of worship. We have to stop trying to make worship – evangelism. Worship is worship, evangelism is evangelism. I agree that a worshiping church is attractive to...
