A Sunday Morning in my shoes…

Today is my game day… The day for my teams to really work… We work all week long for this one day of the week, Sunday…

Today began like any normal Sunday morning… Woke up, got dressed, and headed to the church… I stopped and got coffee like normal (Thanks Starbucks!)… Then I got to the church… I reviewed some videos for the morning then the problems began…

Why is it on such a perfect Sunday morning do the problems begin? Well we had a number of problems, projector not working, live video stuff messed up, videos begin messing up, and on the list goes… However among all the problems blessings always rise… The problems were solved and then we had an awesome service…

I am so glad that these problems were solved and I love the fact that God blessed our services… The services just flowed… The music was great! The drama came off great! The medias worked and looked good! The message was also really good! Everything just seemed to flow…

Sometimes it amazes even me how among the problems God blesses a service and makes it come across great… Thanks God for making things happen in a great way…

Leadership

So I have to write a 3 page paper on Leadership… This is due in a couple of weeks but I wanted to get a head start on it…

lead·er·ship      [lee-der-ship] Pronunciation KeyShow IPA Pronunciation

–noun

1. the position or function of a leader: He managed to maintain his leadership of the party despite heavy opposition.
2. ability to lead: She displayed leadership potential.
3. an act or instance of leading; guidance; direction: They prospered under his leadership.
4. the leaders of a group: The union leadership agreed to arbitrate.


[Origin: 1815–25; leader + -ship]

While thinking about leadership this is not how I would have defined leadership… I believe Leadership involves Vision, Interpersonal Skills, and a little bit of elbow grease because I believe so many leaders are laissez-fair leaders…

I plan on posting some of my research findings as I write the paper… This is just a preview post…

It’s been a very long week…

Okay so I knew this week was going be long but WOW!!! I am still working on video projects for tomorrow’s service (waiting on rendering now)…

I have not slept but about 1 hour in the past 24 hours… I ended up being at the church from Friday 10 PM – Saturday 4 AM… That is not to mention the already 40+ hours I have put in before last night and I still got another 2-3 hours tonight…

So I got home at 4:30 AM Saturday morning only to realize I have no clothes to wear… So I begin doing laundry and it took about 2 hours… I did fall sleep twice for about 30 minutes but that’s all the true sleep I have had in the past 24 hours… I then had to work this morning at the YMCA and then back to the church to finish up projects…

I am just wondering why is it that weeks like this happen so often??? Do I need more volunteer staff??? Do my people work effectively??? This week has definately caused me to think about those things… I will be spending some time next week evaluating those questions and more but for now I got to get back to work…

SimpleTruths.com

Okay so this week I have recieved 2 e-mails on SimpleTruths.com e-movies… My uncle sent me one called “The Dash” (http://www.thedashmovie.com/) and Pastor Alan sent me one called “The Simple Truths of Service” (http://www.stservicemovie.com/)… I found both of these videos to be very interesting…

So check out these to two videos and much more at (http://www.simpletruths.com/movies/)… I have watched the Leadership and Teamwork ones and there are great…

Let me know what you think…

Trevor + WordPress = COMPLETE CONFUSION!!!

So my friend Trevor is trying to move to WordPress.org… He’s completely confused… So…

TREVOR + WORPRESS = COMPLETE CONFUSION!!!

He asked for my help and I have been helping him out but the truth of the matter is WordPress.org is confusing… I setup the Pastors blogs and High Impact Living a long time ago but I can’t remember how I did it all… I think he has lost it trying to get this WordPress Blog setup…

Anyways just wanted to blog something today…
