Tomorrow I am leaving with our staff at 9 am for our annual Staff/Elder’s retreat. I am excited because we are taking tomorrow all day as a staff till dinner to do nothing but think, reflect, pray, and spend time with God. It is really easy (especially with my personality) to want to talk strategy, money, facilities, changes, and everything else. I am thankful for a lead pastor who can hit the pause button and make sure we are all focused in the right direction. Please pray for our staff and elder’s this weekend if you think of it. I will be back Saturday afternoon to delight the blog world with what I have learned and been challenged with.
