Vision

30 days is a long time, and yet on the other hand it is not. In 30 days you can form a new habit, and in 30 days or less a leader can lose their vision, their passion, and fall smack into a wall. I have been there myself – this is not just a theory, it is reality....

Do less…no really

Early in my days as a young church planter I realized the following: The key to greater fruitfulness is not doing more, but doing less. Initially when I shared this idea people were confused – how could doing less help? They knew I had a long list of things to do,...

It cannot be done

I love Chinese food. The food is good – but my favorite part is the fortune cookie. I’m amused by them. I secretly think it would be a fun job to write the sayings for the fortune cookies. We all know that somewhere out there are a small group of people who sit in a...

I'm at the Missio Intensive conference in Denver right now. If we could implement even 20% of the ideas-- and this is true of the ideas at most conferences-- we'd be miles ahead in the church today. This is why I've been thinking about implementation lately. So many...
