We celebrated a milestone March 30 – Charter Sunday. We will be officially received into the Evangelical Covenant Church later this spring/summer. What a ride! Thanks to all our supporters who have invested in this dream that is now a reality and impacting lives.
“Many go to church looking for a spiritual carwash to give our exterior life a little shine for the next 7 days. And, sadly, many churches are all too happy to provide just that. But what we really need is a spiritual repair shop where we can open the hood, take an honest look at our heart condition and let the Good Mechanic begin a spiritual overhaul.” -JEREMY BERG
“Followers want comfort, stability, and solutions from their leaders, but that’s babysitting. Real leaders ask hard questions and knock people out of their comfort zones. Then they manage the resulting distress.”
-Ronald Heifetz, Harvard Professor of Government
I’ve caught a little Beatles fever on the 50th anniversary of the British invasion. I enjoyed the CBS Grammy tribute last night. So, I’m trying to do the ridiculous, the impossible, the utterly absurd: choosing my top Beatles songs. Here are some of my favorites — typically happy, acoustic driven numbers. Ask me tomorrow and I’ll probably have a different list.
In no particular order (that’d be even more impossible):
HERE COMES THE SUN
WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS
ALL MY LOVING
AND I LOVE HER
IN MY LIFE
YOU’VE GOT TO HIDE YOUR LOVE AWAY
