I know, I know.  It is Friday.  I will not apologize for not posting this yesterday because I spent the entire day with my family.  And it was good!  So, here are your Thursday Links… on Friday.

  • Do you know how to edit your life?  Do you have people to help you do that?  Donald Miller speaks to that in his post “Do You Have A Team Of Good Life Editors?”  What a great post!
  • Rob Wegner’s post on GCC’s most recent series sums up all that we have learned so far: Jesus Is Lord!  If anything else takes his place, it will wreck your life.  Read about it in Rob’s post titled, “Is He Worth It?”  (And by the way, the answer is YES!)
  • Seth Godin writes about going in circles and not seeing any progress in “Four Roads.”  Certainly some application to the church in there!
  • GCC is hosting a brand new conference in a couple of weeks called “AND.”  I am really looking forward to it!  My friend, Mark Waltz talks a bit about it in his post “First Impressions  AND…”  Go there and follow his links!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Gonna change things up a bit here and post the best links of the week on Thursday rather than Friday. Here are some great posts from this last week!  Enjoy!

  • Perry Noble encourages all those in full time ministry (and really anyone who has EVER made mistakes in their past) with this post called “Don’t Allow Past Mistakes To Rob You Of An Amazing Future.”  This reminded me of a post I need to write… soon!
  • Donald Miller post on “How To Guide A Team Through Conflict.”  Really an amazing post on going through conflict.  Must. Read.This.
  • Many church leaders I know spend a lot of time criticizing other church leaders because of a different direction and style of ministry (A colossal waste of time by the way!).   They are uncomfortable with change (Or do not have the guts to make the changes) and it is easier to criticize than create, so that is what they do.  Seth Godin‘s post, “Do You Need A Permit, ” addresses criticizing visionaries and those that are different than we are.  We should celebrate, not criticize those that can do what we can and will not do to reach people.  Awesome post!
  • We all need more margin in life.  You know, the space where there is nothing.  We fill that space with stuff, but in reality, that margin is what helps us to do ministry.  Tim Stevens has some great words on this in his post, “A Space For Margin.”

I hope you all have a great weekend!
