funky faith friday

Posted by dturn on August 29, 2008

Some of the things that I am crazy enough to believe God for:

1. A multi-cultural group of people to turn Joliet out for God.

2. Passion for souls more than a passion for change in Washington.

3. Renewed integrity amongst church leaders.

a simple prayer

Posted by dturn on August 27, 2008

Lord, I want to be in the center of your will.
I want to be walking in your purpose for my life.
I want to be part of a movement that will empower people to reach their full potential in Christ.
I believe that You have called me for this time and this season, to do a work for You.
I submit myself to Your direction.
Give me the courage to move forward.
Amen.

boycott chicago schools? bad idea

Posted by dturn on August 26, 2008

There is a movement in the city of Chicago to have children miss the first 2 days of class in protest of the inequality of school funding in the state of Illinois.

This protest is lead by Sen. Rev. James Meeks

I think that this is one of the worst ideas that I have ever heard.
We all know the difficulty that African’American males have on a good day.
Without an education, things get much harder.

what do you think?

“The best motivation is self-motivation. The guy says, I wish someone would come by and turn me on. What if they don’t show up? You’ve got to have a better plan for your life than that.”

freedom

Posted by dturn on August 22, 2008


Burning in my heart is the desire for people to be free.

Free from the chains of failure and disappointment.
Free from the unreasonable expectations of a misguided society.

Free to dream.
Free to love.
Free to live.

No matter how much success I have (or don’t have), I long to see people experience what life is like in its full potential.

Life in Christ.

a leaders edge (8 of 8)

Posted by dturn on August 21, 2008

8. Stand Up!!

Leaders are responsible for the results of their organization, whether they are good or bad.

There is nothing worse than a leader who hides behind his crew when things get rough.

Don’t just accept the applause when things turn out right.
Your team will respect you and your position when you deal with the pressure of mistakes and failure.

You must exhibit the courage that it takes to stand out in front.

There are no excuses for being invisible.

As a leader, you should separate yourself from the “wannabe” leaders.
These are people that talk like a leader but never make a move to the front of the crowd.

Your team, company, or ministry, is looking for someone to guide them.
You are the ONE.

“Authority is 20% given and 80% taken”
Peter Ueberroth

You have an obligation to lead your people to the next level.

Step Up!
