Different prayers?

How different do you think President Zelenskyy’s prayers are today then the ones that he was saying a year ago today?

Same timeframe. How about yours?

Wildly successful Church

Disney Keynote Speaker Jeff Noel
Black and white. You’re either a wild thinker and doer, or you’re not.

Wildly successful Church.

How cool is it when it happens?

Could i play an invisible, yet catalytic role in helping humanity .think .differently about everything?

Bold, heretical belief that i provide an option that doesn’t exist without me.

Meek, uninspired people never move humanity to a better place.

Only the crazy ones.

The outliers.

The misfits.

The ones crazy enough to think they can do something everyone considers impossible.

i get it.

It ain’t for everyone.

Why did God (the Universe, karma, the light, etc) provide such a unique life path to someone who had to bicycle 36 roundtrip miles a day to work at Disney? The same guy, newly married, living in a roach-infested dingy apartment complex, who didn’t own a single piece of furniture, let alone an old car.

To be able to walk or bicycle next door to this Church – to Dream, Create, and Inspire – this is a potential blessing.

The over-riding hope

Super foods are inexpensive during harvest.

i do not hope to live to be 80-90.

This year i hope to speak with more people that old.

Yet more than any other personal hope, i hope to live in the present moment.

It is 6:00 PM, eating dinner at the desk.

Three posts in and the decision is made to push the cathartic writing about yesterday’s meeting to a future day.

.think .differently

What happened at Church?

church sermon opening slide
Irony. The parable of the dishonest manager. Saturday’s wedding reception, where Cheryl and i felt the DJ music’s bass, heard the DJ’s voice and music in our home – while watching the Men’s Olympic Curling final between Sweden and Britain.

What happened at Church?

Didn’t bring up yesterday’s wedding reception’s obscene noise volume.

Chuck rushes – literally rushes out to parking lot – to drive to deliver his third sermon of the day. He does this every Sunday. Without fail.

Didn’t speak with Russ either.

Will likely send email asking the question: What have you instructed your events team to do with regard to noise levels?

Will email Russ a request to meet in person. It will be appropriate after meeting with Russ to update Chuck on the February 19 wedding reception and subsequent talk with Russ.

Special addition to this post: Weeks have passed since writing everything you just read. Now, weeks later, here is where it stands…

Note/update: As the weeks passed by from writing this post, decided to not address the outdoor wedding reception’s heinous noise pollution. Fast forward, met with Russ, made the offer to provide (free) professional development to him and his leadership team. He is receptive and interested. Turns out he is a Disney fan. And a runner. As we walked out of his conference room, he asked about the noise. i described it honestly. And told him i surrender to him and his team doing the right thing. i can no longer be emotionally engaged in worrying if the Church will do what i think is the neighborly thing to do.
