There are some things that are great on their own. Peanut Butter for instance. It’s amazing. But then Mister Reese came a long and said, “you know what this could use? A delicious coat of chocolate.” And with that the first recipient of the Nobel Peace prize was . . . what? Oh I guess the Nobel committee has made a horrible oversight.
I spent much of this week at our Network’s annual conference. It was great. The best part about these kinds of gatherings is that it reminds me that I’m not doing ministry alone. Creekside Church is not doing ministry alone. We are connected with other people who are committed to the mission of the Gospel. We want each other to succeed. Talking with the different leaders that were gathered together it was so great to see that we truly are better together than alone.
If you are a church leader and you don’t go to your network’s gatherings. You need to fix that. If you don’t have a netword that gathers together then start something with other churches in your community. It is incredibly important that you not try to do this alone.
