Monday Proflections May 18 2008

This post is earlier than normal because I have a 6:05am flight into Orange County (I hate getting up early but I love getting an early start and avoiding the LaGuardia delays!).  This is a big week for Church Leader Insights as Roy is rolling out my NEW Time Management for Busy Pastors resource (no link yet, watch your email on Tuesday) and a fun week for me as I’m off to be with my former boss Rick Warren and a ton of my friends from the Purpose Driven Community.  Here’s a look at the week ahead:

Monday – Kerrick and I are flying to Orange County.  We are working on summer sermons on the plane (should be fun) and then we head to LA for some meetings and to catch a taping of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (my favorite of the late night shows – here’s one reason why).

Tuesday – Watch your email for my new Time Management for Busy Pastors resource.  We offered a presale to our key clients last week and the response was overwhelmingly positive!  I’ll be doing a 4 Part Series on Time Management here at the blog starting tomorrow to coincide with the release.  I’ll be at the PD Community Gathering at Saddleback Church thru Thursday – any one else attending?  Let’s definitely connect.

Wednesday – I’m teaching at the PD Community Gathering today.  I’ll be teaching on ‘discipleship’ and I’m sure I’ll find a way to work in my new book on small groups (ha!).

Thursday – Rick is teaching his latest insights on the P.E.A.C.E plan at the ‘non-conference’ today.  I can’t wait.  Later I’ll catch a midnight flight to Florida where I’ll be spending some open time with Kelley and Alexander (I hate midnight flights but I love having the extra day of vacation!).

Friday/Saturday – I’ll be out of touch for a few days on vacation but I’ve got some great posts scheduled for the blog, but more on that later.

Sunday – We are doing ONE BIG service this Sunday with everyone from Brooklyn, Jersey City and Manhattan coming together for one big worship service.  It begins with a preservice Worship Concert by Jason and his team and ends with Kerrick teaching on The Art of Gratefulness.  If you are dong multiple services or multi-site, its good to bring everyone together in one big place a few times a year.

Off to the security line and then to fight with Kerrick over the aisle seat, lets hope the plane isn’t too full!
