Monday Proflections – October 6, 2008

A busy but fun week coming up – here’s what’s happening that may be of interest to you:

Monday – I don’t normally sleep in on Monday’s but today is the exception.  Kelley and Alexander are away visiting the grandparents and my first meeting isn’t until 10:30am.  I’ll be the guy with bed head around the office!

Tuesday – Watch your CLI email for a brand new resource I did with Bob Franquiz.  It’s called Church Planting Pitfalls (you can get a sneak peak by clicking here – its available now)Bob Franquiz is an Advanced Coaching alumni and has become a good friend, a great CLI trainer and a phenomenal resource developer/writer.  This resource was his idea and he let me tag along for the journey.  We basically asked the question – what are the pitfalls that keep a new church from growing after they launch.  If you are in a church less than 5 years old this resource is for you.

Wednesday – I’m not a big fan of retreats (not sure why – I know they are all the rage.  Maybe I’ll talk about this in a future blog) but today I’m dong a one-day retreat with our teaching team.  Our topic: 2009 Preaching Calendar. It’s one of my favorite topics.  In a future blog post or maybe an MP3 download I’ll share with you any insights we learn about planning for 2009.

Thursday – Our teaching team is attending the Catalyst Conference today in Atlanta.  I haven’t been in a couple of years so I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of friends and being challenged by the speakers.  QUESTION: Are you attending Catalyst?  If so, I’d love for you to join me for a special Dessert Reception Tonight in Atlanta – read more about it here – or email cristina <at> for all the details or to RSVP.  We are expecting about 100 friends from the CLI family.

Friday – I’ll be attending Catalyst today and then flying to Florida tonight for a long weekend with Kelley and Alexander.  I’m sure ‘Disney’ will factor in here somewhere.

Thanks for reading my blog!  If you have any questions for me, just use the Ask Nelson button on the right.  So far I’ve been able to answer almost all of your questions by email or here in the blog.

Tomorrow I start a new series of posts on a “Pastors Financial Life.”  See you then!


P.S. If you are going to Catalyst this week, I really hope you’ll let me buy you dessert on Thursday night.  You can read all the details here.
