Interesting leadership Idea...

Leading people should be exhausting if it takes no effort then it's not really leading.

Monday Morning Quarterbacking...

  • This was an amazing week at Discover Point!!!!!
  • We had a big crowd this week and the Band rocked it!!!!
  • I can say even though I am biased.
  • Standby played before the service and I think James and Greg both did an amazing job!!!!!!!
  • I am blessed with great talent at this church and we are hoping to keep adding more musicians that want to worship God.
  • Lisa and Ethan were out of town so I kinda felt like I used to back in the day.....which just means lonely and boring...haha
  • Kids Jamm started and our music/hand motion team did a great job with very little practice.
  • although I lost one member at the beginning....I'm not sure where he hid at. jk
  • Philip nailed the message according to Jeff and I usually try to believe what Jeff says...he's smartified.
  • I am so thankful for Cole and Matt who rocked "by your side" by Tenth Ave North.
  • Thanks guys we will be hearing from those young guys again soon.
  • All in all God moved in an amazing way this past Sunday and I hope we continue to see Him moving.....
  • Sometimes we just need to get out of the way of what God is doing and pay attention to where and what He needs for us to do....
  • LATER.

My family and a train

Smiley's Fleamarket in Macon, GA

What things in your life are important to you? I have alot of things that mean alot to me. My wife and friends/family helped get me a song writer's my dream guitar that I could never means lot to me....I started thinking about STUFF. and i was in Macon, GA this weekend and stopped by Smiley's fleamarket....amazing place. over a mile of people trying to sell STUFF. some of it junk, some of it kinda cool but still I have never seen so much stuff in one place in all my life. I can't wait to hear how Philip communicates about the need for stuff that we have in America....
I took some video of smiley's for your enjoyment...It's a different world in there..

Compliments and Criticisms

If you say what God wants you to say, then all the criticism in the world doesn't matter. If you don't say what God wants you to say, then all the compliments in the world don't matter. In fact, those compliments can become your downfall. Criticism is dangerous. It can harden your heart and poison your spirit if you don't handle it the right way. But I wonder if compliments are even more dangerous? If you preach OR Lfor compliments you'll avoid tough topics because you won't want to step on toes. I hope you get compliments as a preacher OR WORSHIP LEADER. But I also hope you get some criticisms mixed in. If you aren't offending pharisees now and then, you might be preaching a man-pleasing message instead of a God-pleasing message.

By the way, if you are criticized for the wrong reasons take it as a compliment. And if you are complimented for the wrong reasons take it as a criticism.
