After a year long battle with breast cancer
A personal note...
|"You have breast cancer", is what I was told. What I felt was something entirely different! I knew I might die. In one week's time I had been through mulitiple tests, and doctor's offices, including the hospital for a "port" inserted in my chest for chemo. My world fairly routine and predictable was now catapulted into the unknown. Nothing I had ever faced before came even close to the journey I now faced. What do you do when a phone call comes with a heart-wrenching message, a life an death diagnosis, a partner who choses to leave, or a child who loses his way? Where do you go in a wilderness you never chose to wander? Our theme "Ultimate Praise" is the result of my personal journey with breast cancer. To sing when the sky is falling or praise when the waves are crashing is beyond human capability. It is Jesus and Jesus only who can bring light into the darkness and give joy in the midst of pain! At this retreat we will explore stories of those who have charted paths through their own wilderness experience and we will learn together the lesson of praise in the midst of the storm! Join us for a weekend spent with Jesus and friends old and new!
Attributes for a Christian Leader
taken from Mosaic a GC WM publication
"Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed. Because His compassions fail not. They are new
every morning. Great is Your faithfulness.
When someone serves you, be understanding not demanding. Paul counsels us, "Don't just think about your own affairs, but be interested in others too, and in what they are doing. Your attitude should be the same as Jesus Christs" (Phil 2:4-5 GNB)
When somebody disappoints you be gentle not judgmental. Paul remonds us, "Welcome those who are weak in faith, but do not argue with them about their personal opinions" (Romans 14:1 GNB)
HAPPINESS COMES WHEN YOU CAN
ACCEPT PEOPLE AS THEY ARE.
When someone corrects you, be teachable rather than unreachable. Meekness is a teachable spirit. James advises us, "Everyone must be quick to listen, but slow to speak and slow to become angry"
(James 1:19 GNB)
When someone hurts you, be an actor not a reactor. You will be hurt in ministry. It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when. How you respond to being
hurt will make a monumental difference in your ministry. We must respond to hurts with love, not retailiation. Paul encourages us, "do not let evil
defeat you; instead, conquer evil with good"
(Romans 12:21 GNB)
