Do not look for a role model here

To be a great Christian, we must do one thing above all others. We must not look to human beings for our role models. Humans are perfectly imperfect.

Use the source of your beliefs, say Jesus or Muhammad, as your template.

Am i the only one who seems the hypocrisy and injustice here

Christians are so flawed.

i’m so flawed.

You’re so flawed, even if you’re not a Christian. Humans are flawed.

The Bible says marriage is between one man and one woman. This has been interpreted to mean any sexuality other than heterosexual is bad.

When married in a Christian Church, marriage vows include, “Until death do us part.” This is interpreted to mean divorce is only plausible with infidelity.

Does an American divorce rate over 50% get immunity from being “bad”?

To me, it seems gays, lesbians, and transgenders are wrongly targeted.

To be fair, shouldn’t the same level of distaste and contempt apply to divorce?

Am i the only one who seems the hypocrisy and injustice here?

Wouldn’t it make more sense to focus on love, compassion, and acceptance?

As long as love drives our life, isn’t everything else just a uniquely individual detail, that no human is qualified to judge?

How Can You Tell?

There is something contagiously different about working with them

ATT Wi-Fi calling registration
If you doubted you would see the morning light, who would you want to talk to for peace and comfort?

 

There is something contagiously different about working with them.

Who?

Christians.

In 3o years at Disney, i never attended a meeting that embraced using my Christian Faith as a work asset. As one of the most admired (#6 in 2014, #5 in 2015) companies in the world, Disney remained neutral so as to embrace everyone. i totally support that.

However, something wonderfully unexpected has happened. Simply by chance, nearly every company i’ve worked with this year has been an openly Christian-Centered organization.

It is way different. To talk openly about Jesus, God, prayer – wow.

Yesterday, on LinkedIn of all places, had a wonderful message exchange with another Christian centered company. It wasn’t until it was over that it hit me.

A joy and freedom i have never known professionally.

Please don't tell me

Walt Disney was an American, with deep American values

Disney customer service speaker
It all started with a Mouse.

 

Walter Elias Disney was an American, with deep American values.

In 30 years at Disney, i never herd anyone talk about Walt’s spiritual beliefs.

Looking back, that seems absurd, because it was such an important aspect of his life. Maybe even the most important.

His father, Elias, named him after their Pastor.

Blessed Beyond Measure?

What if we come to find out we are only getting part-time benefits?

Catholic Reading January 11, 2015
Lector’s vantage point before Mass yesterday.

 

We can’t be a Christian on the side.

Part time behavior doesn’t really cut it.

It’s like a marriage. All in.

Commitment.

Remember?

And, yes, of course, it’s hard as hell to do everything we’re supposed to do as responsible adults.

Ain’t nobody immune from that.

Everyone in the pews is irreplaceable in the workplace of service.

Crazy how much God loves us.

Maybe we take it for granted.
