Roller-coaster

It’s been a roller-coaster year in many ways for our family. Among many things I lost my step-mom, Phyllis and my Grandma and attended their funerals. Family is important. People are important. We are created to love God and love others. Psalm 68:6 tells us that “God places the lonely in families…) And that’s pretty fantastic!

Stop, don’t stress – enjoy your moments together with the people you love. It may be a very difficult time right now for you, but God knows AND CARES. Allow His love to comfort and empower you to speak His love to others. 

Posterous vs. Tumblr

I REALLY like Posterous. But today I took a lot of time debating whether to make a new site ( http://LeaderShare.com ) at Tumblr or Posterous. In the end, I had to go with Tumblr. The reason? It has a simple “submit” button, and a simple “ask a question” button. That actually made the difference for me.

You see, I want people — other leaders — to contribute short lists of 5 or less items that will help us try or retry leadership stuff. It can be a simple list, or a list with descriptions. Posterous lets you “contribute” but you have to register and jump through hoops. And because of this, it is not ready for what I want at a site for sharing information. 

What do you use?

Oh, and if you have something to contribute? Just go to LeaderShare.com and drop something in, ok?

Haiti Trip Postponed

Convoy-of-hope

With about 72 hours notice, our trip to Haiti has been postponed. Facing hurricanes, mudslides, people being even more displaced, and uncertainty has made this trip too unsafe for now. 

It looks like it may be rescheduled for January, but I won’t know much more until next week (hopefully by Wednesday). I’m bummed because Convoy of Hope wanted to do this tour for about a dozen pastors. Please pray for the people of Haiti — they are pretty forgotten and times are really difficult there.
