John Maxwell wrote, "if we are growing, we will always be out of our comfort zone." 

Bill C, a friend of mine likes to say, "there are three kinds of churches: growing, stagnant and declining.  Each has their unique set of problems.  Which set of problems would you like to have?"

We have three values at our church:  Joy, authenticity and excellence.  Everyone loves joy.  Authenticity is usually a welcomed trait.  Excellence is what is so very difficult. 

Excellence demands that you call things to account.   That you push on toward a better tomorrow.  Excellence stays up with the times.  Excellence challenges the status quo.  Excellence pushes for the mission.  Those things are never easy, but healthy organizations must keep thinking about and focusing on excellence.

It is true of our lives as well.  If we would live excellently, we must keep trying to improve ourselves.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
