Monday Morning Quick Hits

  • A lot happened last week.
  • My in-laws have been in town to help us make the adjustment into parenthood, they’ve been a big help and there have been lots of funny moments. One of my favorites from my father in-law: “What does YOLO mean again?”
  • We all woke up Friday morning to the horrible news out of Aurora, Colorado. No matter your opinion on gun control/2nd Amendment now is not the time to make a political argument. Now is a time to pray and reflect on the ways you can bring the light of the Kingdom into the darkness.
  • How awesome is my wife? Really, really awesome.
  • Paterno’s statue came down. Never underestimate the power of a symbol.
  • Big thanks to Jonathan Pearson for being the first contributor to the Rookie Pastor Paternity Leave, awesome take on the Sabbath.
  • John Piper defends OT genocide. I have to admit that when I read that headline I cringed, but after watching it Piper has me at least considering a position I wasn’t at previously. It is impossible for me not to respect Piper’s passion and grasp of Scripture. Listen to those you disagree with, don’t just disagree. A counterpoint.
  • Economy and charitable giving infographic.
  • Stopping to ask the obvious question.
  • Who Gives a Crap? Using toilet paper to help others, love this idea.
  • There was a dust up last week about the role of women. Like many I was shocked at some of the language used, therefore the apology issued needs to be shared.
  • What story does your church budget tell?
  • You could buy cool apps, or just wait for Google to gobble them up and integrate them.
  • Josh Griffin on raising kids in ministry, some things he has said in the past have been things Heidy and I have always hoped we could live out. We’ll see.
  • Don’t be the leader that limits growth.
  • Terrace Crawford has some openings for his coaching network.
  • What Amazon is doing to business is also happening to the local church. Change or die folks. Remember Tandy computers? and no, sadly no relation.
  • Reflections from a student ministry intern at Saddleback.
  • Want to see giving go up? Make online giving an option.
  • Been great to welcome some new advertising partners around here. Love working with folks to develop packages and pricing that fit their needs and this community. Contact me for more details.
