Practical Stuff for Church Leaders

John Burke at WhiteBoard

Key thoughts...

  • God was asking me, "Am I enough?" I had to honestly answer, "No, God, you aren't enough."
  • Addiction to self is a real deal.
  • We've made Christianity confusing and complex for people.
  • It's simple though: Stay connected...fruit happens. Stay connected to Jesus moment by moment and help people around you do the same. God brings the growth.
  • We get to create a culture of grace and acceptance, but we don't have to change people. That's God's deal.
