Friday Stream of Consciousness – 110

Here’s what’s on my mind this Friday morning: Last week, four people were baptized into Christ at NVC. I never get tired of baptisms. Sports Talk Radio is becoming more and more like listening to political talk radio. Piers Morgan was canceled. Who could have seen that coming? Most people. An 11-year-old girl shot and killed a Mountain Lion that was stalking her brother. Wow. It was just a short time after her 9-year-old brother had...

Friday Stream of Consciousness – 109

Here are some things on my mind this Friday morning: Thin Mints are the only real Girl Scout cookies. The softball season starts Saturday. I’m head coaching Olivia’s team (10U) and assistant coaching Anna’s team (12U). It is so much fun. Now, it’s time for championships I miss playing baseball. So, I’m think for my 40th birthday present to myself (not up for a couple of years…but still), I might...

Here’s what’s on my mind this Friday morning: Mom is home from the hospital. She got home just in time to celebrate her birthday. So far, she’s recovering nicely and barring any setback, she’ll be ready to return to her normal awesomeness soon. It was great spending some time with just me, my sister, mom and dad, on her birthday. Mom said it’s a huge blessing to her that Tammy (my sister) and I are...

Friday Stream of Consciousness – 106

Here’s what’s on my mind this Friday: It’s been quite a week. Mom had open heart surgery yesterday to undergo a valve replacement and bypass. She came through like a champ, no doubt on the answered prayers of many. To those of you who did–thank you so much. Thanks for being patient with me this week as I took it slow from a blogging standpoint, of necessity. I’ve always tried to ride the fence of trying to provide consistent,...

Friday Stream of Consciousness – 104

Here are some things on my mind this Friday morning: This Sunday is Vision Sunday at New Vintage Church. It’s something I’ve done for the last ten years or so wherever I’ve served. It’s a time to thank God for all the great things He’s done and recalibrate our vision for the year ahead. I also reveal some new initiatives for the upcoming year. We get to formally introduce our first staff hire since our...

Friday Stream of Consciousness – 102

Here are some things on my mind this Friday morning: Rest in peace, Nelson Mandela. If you are interested in getting to know Mandela while gleaning fine leadership lessons from him at the same time, allow me to heartily recommend Richard Stengel’s, Mandela’s Way: Lessons on Life, Love and Courage. Mandela himself wrote the preface, and Stengel had uncommon access to Mandela. It’s an outstanding read. Here are some...
