Obama, Pentagon certify DADT repeal

Obama, Pentagon certify DADT repeal: “WASHINGTON (BP)–President Obama and Pentagon leaders announced Friday they have certified the United States military is prepared for open homosexuals to serve in the armed services. The certification by the president, plus new Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Michael Mullen, means only a 60-day waiting period remains before final repeal of a longstanding policy that bars open homosexuals from serving openly in the Armed Forces.” The most concerning thing to me is the freedom to preach the gospel and call people to repent from their sin including homosexuality.

Good Biblical dialogue

Many dialogues today are very immature from my perspective.  I love it when believers can talk about Scripture and their beliefs in a winsome and humble way in an effort to learn from each other and not just talking past each other.  I love it when other brothers and sisters in Christ can dialog in a agreeable way over their different perspectives in an effort to learn and grow to know Christ more fully.

What is your church measuring? What does that say about your mission?

I have always said that what you measure drives your behavior. I have found more conformation fo this in an article from Vanguard Church by Bob Robinson. He says: What is your church measuring? What does that say about your mission?: “ Edgar Schein, Professor of Management at MIT, says that whatever an organization measures becomes its de facto culture. Churches and ministry organizations write mission statements that are great, but they are only wishful thinking if they have put in place mechanisms to measure their success that are contrary to those lofty mission statements. For instance,a random mission statement

A church as a Teaching Hospital

Here is a great post on how we should view a church if we are going to multiply or plant other churches called: Planting a Church? Plant a Teaching Hospital by Brandon Cox. See if this kind of multiplication resonates with you. Brandon Cox writes: That phrase – “teaching hospital” – jumped out at me during a recent conversation with Geoff Surratt, Pastor of Church Planting at Saddleback Church. As we discussed the vision of Grace Hills Church over lunch, Geoff helped me put words to the burden I kept feeling to plant more than a church – to plant
