Out of blog hibernation

I took a "technological sabbath" of sorts for nearly 10 days. No twitter, no facebooks updates, no blogs, no texting. I think I checked emails three times. It's amazing how much time this generation gives to this stuff. (that is an amoral statement by the way) I had just finished up a three part series, and group retreat then headed off for vacation with my family. It was incredibly refreshing and a great reminder that what I do in my 9-5 will never be the most important role I play. Even as a pastor!

Organizational Culture:
Here is a quote from Netflix Company about organizational culture that a friend passed along to me. Very good stuff that has my brain evaluating and working in overdrive:

"The real company values as opposed to the nice-sounding values are shown by who gets rewarded, promoted, or let go" other words the real values aren't on the walls or on the website they are in embedded in the behavior and practices of an organization. Good stuff. Good Reminder.

Five Things:
Here is a picture from our new series called "Five Things God uses to Grow your faith." GREAT series. The opener this week will be sweeeeeeet!:
