Welcome to my site. My goal is to keep you connected to everything happening in my preaching and writing ministries. Thanks for following along!

Monday Mind Dump

You may have noticed I didn't post anything new to the blog last week.'t  That's because we were blessed to spend all of last week in Orlando, FL at Disney World as a family -  it was awesome! (Unfortunately, no one warned us about the severe post-Disney depression that sets in upon your return. We keep wondering why everyone isn't waving and smiling all the time...) Now we're back to work and here's a few things on my mind this morning...

  • Disney is better at hospitality than any church I've ever been to. It doesn't matter if you encounter someone sweeping the streets, working security, or running a ride - EVERYONE is engaging and looking for opportunities to serve. Very impressed by that and challenged to see Redemption grow in this.
  • For some reason I struggle to maintain my spiritual disciplines while on vacation. I think it's because my normal routine is off and I have to be incredibly intentional to stay in God's Word. More on this later this week.
  • I had the day off from preaching yesterday which was a blessing. Having a week off always recreates a deep desire to grow and develop my preaching ministry. It also allows me to walk around more and have a better idea of where we have opportunity to improve our Sunday morning worship gatherings. If you're a preacher and don't schedule time off to simply attend your church, you should.
  • Love the clarity from Harvest Bible Chapel in helping new people know what they can expect if they make Harvest home
