Monday Start

start (1)Leadership Resources

One of the best and most comprehensive sites for finding good Christian leadership resources is Carlus Gupton‘s  Check out this resource guide index to see how comprehensive this site really is.  (I recently heard two days of excellent presentations by Carlus at the Christian Education Conference.)

Churches and Polarization

Margaret Marcuson does outstanding work in the area of systems theory and leadership.  Be sure to read her post “Is Your Church Polarized?”  Very good!

Wrong Way

Great story.  The woman who went 900 miles out of her way as she followed her GPS.  (Thanks to Scott Meyer/Jordan Hubbard for this one.)


See Rory Noland‘s post “5 Reasons Why Intergenerational Worship Works Today.”  Very interesting!  Rory is the director of Heart of the Artist Ministries and was Music Director at Willow Creek Community Church for 20 years.


I found this interesting – especially his resources.  David Brooks’ syllabus for his “Humility” course at Yale.  (See also the Atlantic-wire article.)


What a great moment!  Lebron James tackles fan who wins $75,000 after making a half-court shot.

  1. hi jim, i was reading what you said about ego and it was great. i have been preaching now for over thirty years, but ego is something that never goes away. sue and i were talking about the wonderful times we had with you and charlotte back in the day. i spent eighteen years with a church in beautiful hurricane mills, tn and the last five in lewisburg, tn. we have one son, caleb 27 years old, a graduate of the university of tennessee knoxville, big orange.

    I hope things are well with you and your family.
