I am seriously hoping there is something to that osmosis learning stuff. That means that all of this wonderful information, ideas, etc., that I am learning, will still stick around even though my brain seems to turn off while the seminars and workshops continue on...
I am at the Leadership Nexus Conference in Arlington, TX. I have had the opportunity to glean information on church leadership, leading church growth, the emerging church, worship, five practices, etc. There is none of it that I consider frivolous or non-important, but I am assuming that my attention span was never developed to be able to handle 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. straight!
That being my biggest complaint, everything is going well. I am hoping to be able to assimilate this wonderful information into something that will benefit me as a leader, my congregation, and my community.
I really enjoyed Bishop Schnase's presentation this evening. We are currently working through the study of the Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations in my congregation through Lent. I took copious notes on the Bishop's presentation. I am convinced that this is pure genius. You know genius - an idea so simple, no one has thought of it before. By the way, I said that to Bishop Schnase, and I am a little embarrassed by it. I am normally a much more subtle schmoozer. I guess the exhaustion is taking it's toll.
