The new year is showing some positive signs on the church council front. This evening’s business lasted all of 75 minutes. The remainder of the time we actually talked mission and ministry. I’ve never been so juiced by a council meeting.
After everything was said and done I was actually excited! It was hands down the most amazingly great meeting I’ve attended. It was streamlined. It was focused. It was orderly. And it actually accomplished something other than informing everyone what each board was working on and haggling over budget lines. It was a real treat.
