It’s been awhile since I posted the last Blog Break. I guess the tension after the general elections here in Kenya have re-organized all our schedules as we wait for the final poll results to be announced. Here are four links to articles that I found worth sharing and re-reading:
- TEACHABILITY. This post was written for me. It hit the nail right on the head (and into my heart). David Murray; “No matter how much talent and gifting we have, if we are, or become, unteachable, we will never reach anywhere near our full potential in our careers, our callings, or our relationships.”
- HOW TO ROCK TWITTER LIKE A PHARISEE, I don’t know about you, but I find myself doing it all the time. Human beings have a natural tendency to draw “envious” attention towards themselves, even under the guise of humility and innocence. Mike Leake hits home with this one. I particularly loved the examples he used in the “SmugPharisee” mock twitter account. Plus I got to learn a new word from the post: Facebragging.
- CHURCH SHOULD BE A PLACE OF UNDISTRACTING EXCELLENCE. Stephen Altrogge; “In worship, children’s ministry, preaching, coffee, sanctuary temperature, lobby greeters, and ushers, we are aiming for “undistracting excellence”. If our service to the Lord is sloppy, disorganized, late, and smells bad, it will distract people from communing with God. If the worship team sounds like a walrus seal massacre, people will have trouble focusing their attention on God.”
- Finally, in WHY I DON’T LIKE CHRISTIAN MUSIC, Michael Patton takes the question right out of my mouth, “Why is it that when people become Christian in the music business they feel pressured to only sing songs exclusively about Jesus?” The answer could be controversial. read and find out.
Enjoy your reading, friends.
