elephant in the living room

Posted by dturn on September 28, 2007

I’ve been thinking of a way to get Christ followers of all colors and creeds together (online/in person) to confront the issue of racial reconciliation in the church.

Unfortunately, race is still an issue in our country. It’s also a major issue in our churches.
I think that this is something that needs to be addressed and dealt with.

When I get my thoughts together, I’ll let everyone know.
Any suggestions?

This has got to be the best talk that I’ve ever heard on hip-hop and the church.
This has spoken to me LOUD AND CLEAR.

what do you want?

Posted by dturn on September 26, 2007

What do you want?

Do we ever really ask God for what we want?
Some of us ask for world peace, the end of poverty or for the Cubs to win the World Series.

But what do we really want?

Some of us answer the way we think that God wants to hear (scripturally sound).
But what’s in your heart?

God loves it when we are real with Him.
Tell Him how you feel, what you really desire out of life.
He can handle it.

I want to be used to show people how to get back to God.

My guy Tadd and his crew hit another home run for the Lord yesterday.

This really pumps me up.
God is no respector of people.
If He can do it there, He can do it here

lead

Posted by dturn on September 14, 2007

I want to be the kind of leader that people WANT to be around.
I don’t want to be the guy that people tolerate just because I have a title.

I want to lead from the FRONT.
I want to be an example of honor and integrity.

Not out of duty but out of passion.
I deeply desire to lead people back to Christ.
