WHEN A QUESTION BECOMES HOMEWORK

PA281186Jason Freedman:

“Saying I don’t know… turns a question into a homework assignment.

As long as I follow up with the answer later, they never mind.”

Hamza Khan:

“Rather than nodding your head when you don’t know what someone is talking about, or blindly guessing an answer (only to be proven wrong), give yourself permission to not know it all.

Simply admit that you don’t know the answer, while adding that you’re happy to find out and tell them the answer later.

Not only will you save yourself from potential embarrassment, you’ll be perceived as more reliable and trustworthy.”

GETTING MARRIED TO A STYLE OF MUSIC

DSC_0005Mike Cosper:

“When worship gets married to a particular style of music, the consequences are huge. 

In previous generations, the marriage was between worship and classical music.  In my own generation, it’s a marriage between particular styles of pop music and worship. 

Biblically speaking, there’s a better way.  

One day, every tribe, tongue, and nation will be before God’s throne.  

I think that will include classical music, modern worship, hip-hop, Qawwali folk music, and more.  

Our churches have the opportunity to be a microcosm of that reality.”

WHY SHOULD YOU HAVE UNREAD BOOKS IN YOUR LIBRARY?

“The array of books in our home is intended for ongoing, well-rounded usefulness. They’re there to show us what’s possible, not venerate what’s already been.”

“My library has a diverse lot of books and, more importantly, an open invitation to the kids: Come; stoke your interest in all kinds of incredible things!”

“I have a big library with a bunch of books I haven’t even read yet. I’m not a poser; I’m prepared. Always ready to feed the flames of my children’s imagination with a well-placed book, even if it’s one I haven’t gotten around to reading yet myself!”

FIVE COMMENTS ABOUT MINISTRY WORTH FURTHER REFLECTION

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJohn Stevens:

  1. Churches should be more willing to appoint older men as senior ministers
  2. Experienced pastors should be willing to take on the challenge of revitalising struggling churches
  3. Most men entering the ministry should have had significant experience in the workplace
  4. We need more men in the ministry who serve bi-vocationally
  5. Appointing women pastors won’t stem church decline
