Core

A few days ago Brad Abare at Church Marketing Sucks had a really touching postApple entitled "Why we do this".  His words and his quote pulled from The Importance of Being Foolish strike a satisfying chord with me.  He says it better than I could, check it out...

His point is great, so many times we can get caught up with details of ministry itself and forget bout the core of who we are and what our mission is as Christians.  Here's a bit of his post:

"In the midst of our strategic thinking, creative planning, and momentous momentum, my prayer is that we replace that empty space Manning refers to not with the self-moved or self-motivated, but with the Spirit-led mind of Christ. Surrendering our big ideas, our best intentions, and our brilliant plans is perhaps what Paul was referring to in Galatians 2:20 when he said, 'it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me...'"

Word.
