All the Earth by The Belonging Co. So good! Wait until you hear Peace Be Still.

Quotes I’m wrestling with:

“Remember, what you’re doing now matters more than it feels like it does. That’s why this week and every week is really important.” Reggie Joiner

My own posts I hope you’re reading:

What will you try this year that might change your ministry’s trajectory?

I’ve written many times that I’ve never been more proud than when my prospective boss at Parkview was told, “If you’re okay with a mad scientist, Mark will be a good hire.”

Seriously…I want to always be trying something new; to be experimenting with ideas that might change our trajectory.
