Who’s exempt

Church Pastor preaching

Meeting with the Head Pastor (not the lead campus Pastor, but the top Pastor) about two things, which are copied and pasted here from my Jan 18, 2022 email to Pastor Chuck:

  1. “one super-optimistic, wonderfully-hopeful Lakeside thing to share”
  2. “one big, deep, nagging concern regarding Lakeside Church operations”

Guiding mantra to stay on track, knowing the Church is surrounded by Residential communities…

No one is exempt from the law.

Your best spiritual tool

The time and energy you expend at work makes a great case for work being the center of your life.

Your best spiritual tool?

Whatever you manifest as the center of your whole life.

For me, it’s Jesus.

Where is your spirit taking you today?

Lower left name in all lower case letters. Intentional. Might even be the first time in Disney history someone has done this.

Where is your spirit taking you today?

To Peace beach?

To Contentment summit?

Gratitude is the key to unlocking happiness.

Try being unhappy when you are grateful.

Happy present moment.

How do you measure Spirit?

Five blogs a day. Everyday. Without missing a day. Ever. Since April Fools Day, 2009.

You can not improve what you do not measure. 

Well then, how do you measure Spirit?

Peace and contentment. 

What? How?

Keep track of how often during each day you become impatient, angry, or hurt. Keep track of how often (each day) you long for a different lifestyle. 

You’ll know peace and contentment when you consistently say, “zero times today”.

The times they are a changing

Transplanting a Disney tree
Bicycling South on World Drive. On the right just before the Main WDW Toll Plaza overpass. Yesterday, you guessed it.
translating huge Oak Tree at Disney
The crew told me it takes a month to dig up and transplant.

The times they are a changing – a Bob Dylan song. And a global reminder 24/7 right now.

This is always true.

In the midst of our global pandemic outbreak, we have already experienced unprecedented change.

More on the way.

Then there’s you.

Your daily, lifetime change is insidiously small, literally undetectable, the way a tree grows in your front yard.

You never see things changing until you move away and return years later.

Wow, look how big that tree has become.

Note: World-class wakeup calls are gifts sent from the Universe to get our attention. What we do with the message we receive is generally a big sigh of relief when the bad thing has passed, and then life goes back to the way it was before.

Pretty sure we should not let that happen.
