It is Christmas time for those among us who are Christian - a time when Christians celebrate that God is active and participates in the world. Hanukah reminds Jewish people of the abiding grace of a God whose presence was symbolized by oil and of a time when the oil was low but somehow lasted - God was not to abandon them. Others among our readers may come from other traditions and have other reasons to remember, refresh and renew. Whatever tradition you come from please know that we at ARE wish you to have joy-filled and blessed holidays! Continue reading

Thanksgiving is more than a holiday - it is a way of life. People who are thankful understand life as a gift, receive things with joy, and are resistant to developing an entitlement mindset. Thankfulness is part of life that is open and receptive to the blessings that come. That same openness means those same open hands that receive are also more likely to be open to share and letting go as well. This Thanksgiving week is a chance to take stock of your life and the attitudes that dominate how you think and act. Are you thankful and receptive? Are you open and generous? Reflecting on these things this week may give you a great chance to make adjustments next week. Enjoy the holiday and have a Happy Thanksgiving! Continue reading

Dave: Last week I spent a wonderful time in the Maritime provinces of eastern Canada. The Celtic Colours Festival happens each year about this time and it brings the best of Celtic music together from all around the globe. Musicians from Cape Breton Island (Nova Scotia), the US, other parts of Canada, England, Scotland, Wales, and many other places came for a series of concerts that would wow and amaze those of us who had come to see and hear. But in the midst of all these amazing performers was an amazing sign of how these people were equipping and freeing the next generation of performers. If you were watching, you couldn't miss what they were up to. And the future of Celtic music and future leaders was happening right in front of our eyes. Most of us could learn a ton by paying attention to what they did. Continue reading

Beyond Butts and Bucks is about measuring what matters. In a consumable model we just ask "How many came?" and "How much money did we get?" While those can be helpful and even important questions, they are far from the only ones and often not even the most important ones. Interested in changing the conversation in your congregation away from money and attendance and toward something else? Join us Thursday!

Dave: The recent NFL lockout has meant lots of football players are stuck in limbo, waiting and wondering if they will be working next fall as football players or if the season is simply going to be lost in the shuffle. So, when I saw this story about one player who decided that he could either wait and see what life brought or he could engage it and make something useful come of this, I was impressed with the choices he made.

The summer comedy, Dinner for Schmucks, delivers more than a few laughs; it's a lesson in the importance of leading with values. You get in trouble when, as a leader, you are unclear about who you are and what your core values are. You will be more likely to be blown about by the winds of life. You and the people you work with will lack the clarity and consistency to stay the course and truly do what matters.
