So my wife, Sharla, signed us up for softball, which neither of us have ever played. Softball has kicked our rears so far! The first week Sharla got a bruise the size of a small dog on her knee and leg. This week while I was running to first, I took a small look back and bit the dust about 10 feet short of first. Attached is the picture of my knee (women and children avert your eyes).
I think it is vital to try new things, but at some point you have to figure out what you are good at and, well…what you aren’t.
This week I have spent some time considering where Dayspring is and where we are headed. I am using June to dream and vision for the future. One of the big questions I asked was, “What comes naturally to Dayspring?” In other words, what are we good at doing and what takes more energy to accomplish–possibly too much energy to accomplish.
I think it is important that churches play to their strengths. Dayspring can do what other churches cannot and vice versa. This month of self-evaluation will certainly lead to a more focused direction for Dayspring in the fall. And as for my fall schedule, I think I’ll just sit on the bench and cheer the team.
