I’m coming off a super busy weekend…
On Thursday and Friday, I was in Hesston, KS with Leadership Reno County kicking off the 2015 class with a retreat. I love playing a small part in the leadership development of our community. Many of the things our community continues to work on are big, hairy, adaptive problems. I think LRC helps equip people, regardless of their background, to make progress in these areas.
As soon as I returned from this, our Elders got away for a Bible Intensive Retreat with Jim Elliff and Kole Farney. In church work, especially among church leadership, we can spend so much time doing important, even necessary things, that we can neglect the more vital things. I’ve noticed over the past few years that studying the Bible together would be a great thing. Jim’s preferred method for reading the Bible is really where we spent much of our time, working through John 1 together. By the way, Jim did preach for me (and Kole shared his testimony). ‘Twas a great sermon on what it means to be a True Disciple.
Today, this busy weekend ended by being able to participate in the Reno County Youth Leadership Summit. I was able to speak on how leadership starts with you and must engage others.
So, I’m pretty beat, but it’s a good tired and I’m grateful to get to serve both our community, local church leadership and the church at large. Have a great week.
