Monday Proflections – June 30, 2008

It’s the week of July 4th and a vacation time for many people. I’m even taking a few days later in the week so it’s a pretty relaxed week, but here’s what’s going on that may be of interest to you:

Monday – In our various staff meetings today, we are continuing our discussion of ‘how to wow’ – I hope to blog on some of the more interesting ideas soon.

Tuesday – We generally have 3 ‘church systems’ meetings on Tuesday – each one no more than an hour. First one up is Assimilation, where we discuss how the system is running and measure our effectiveness. Second is Evangelism, and the final one is Ministry/volunteers. Three meetings may sound like a lot but actually consolidating all discussions about these BIG areas into three one hour meetings each week saves a ton of time.

Wednesday – I’m off to visit my parents in NC today. When my dad turned 70 five years ago, I made a commitment to never miss his birthday (June 10). This year, his schedule didn’t allow for a visit on June 10 so I’m hanging with him over the fourth (I think he’s busier in retirement than he was when he worked full-time. I hope to follow that pattern too).

Thursday – While I’m in NC, I’ll also be visiting one of my best friends in the world. Check out his blog here.

Friday – Happy Independence Day! Watch your email for a BIG July 4th Special from Church Leader Insightsall downloads will be on sale for $10. Why? It’s our way of saying thank you being part of the CLI family.

Saturday – Heading back to the city and doing some final prep for Sunday. No evening services tomorrow in Manhattan so I’ll only be preaching three times. We will sometimes cancel the evening services over a holiday weekend (July 4th, Thanksgiving, etc.) as a way to reward our staff and volunteers.

Have a great week! I’ll see you back here tomorrow – I’m very excited about this week’s blog posts.
