Monday Morning Mind Dump…

mind dump

  • Last week was a whirlwind of a week.
  • On Tuesday, I flew to Tallahassee so I could attend the funeral of Jerad’s (the worship pastor at Revolution Church) dad. Then on Wednesday I drove to Orlando to attend The Magnetic Church Conference which was all about building a culture of evangelism in your church.
  • I learned so much while I was there, still processing it all.
  • Read some great books on the plane: The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary ResultsReady to Be a Thought Leader: How to Increase Your Influence, Impact, and Success and Leadership Blindspots: How Successful Leaders Identify and Overcome the Weaknesses That Matter
  • Stay tuned for reviews.
  • Got back early Saturday morning and then got to have an awesome morning at Revolution yesterday.
  • I taught on marriage and divorce and we had our highest non-holiday attendance ever.
  • On a holiday weekend even!
  • Crazy.
  • Makes me really excited to launch our series on Easter called The New Rules for Love, Sex and Dating. 
  • I mentioned that on Facebook last night and got questions like, “will you talk about the resurrection on easter? Will you tie relationships into the resurrection?”
  • I don’t understand those questions. We talk about the resurrection every week.
  • One of the highlights last week was being walked around Epcot by a former Disney Imagineer. If you can ever do that, I highly recommend it.
  • The response to my message yesterday was overwhelming.
  • For me, it was so encouraging hearing from people who have walked through the pain of a divorce and how yesterday was helpful.
  • I think pastor’s often do a poor job of preaching on divorce and having a high view of marriage without making people feel bad.
  • It is possible to give people hope.
  • Watched the football games yesterday with some Packer fans.
  • Needless to say, it was a sad afternoon in our house.
  • Hoping for a good Super Bowl.
  • Not like last year.
  • I was excited to see the nominations for Best Picture.
  • I’ve seen some of them, but excited to see the others.
  • Stay tuned for my opinion on what should win.
  • Tons of great things are happening at Revolution right now as we head into the spring season of ministry.
  • Super excited.
