While the church body as a whole must be healthy to thrive, leaders must be healthy spiritually to be able to carry out a church's vision and direction.
COFFEE AND DONUTS. THEY GO TOGETHER LIKE LOVE AND MARRIAGE.
Someday I’d like to write a poem and I’d like to start it with the line, “Coffee and donuts, sittin’ in a tree.” I’m not sure where to go from there.
I get that far and all I know is that I want to be in that tree. I confess I’ve had a few too many donuts. Sad to say, the bough on that tree would be bending pretty low about now.
That’s why I decided to go on yet another diet recently. Also, sad to say, I’ve already fallen off the wagon. I’m thinking of putting up a sign that says,
“Please keep body inside the wagon at all times, and please stay seated until the wagon comes to a complete and final stop.”
I can’t believe that woman took my seat. Doesn’t she know that I sit there every Sunday?
Boy, this sermon is long. I wish he’d speed it up a bit.
I can’t believe my friend isn’t here again this week. She’s missed twice this month.
When I got home from church, I felt angry, depressed and just plain cranky. I couldn’t figure out why, so I sat on my bed and asked God to reveal why I felt the way I did.
“Analyze your heart,” He said to me.
