Excuses, Excuses

I've been setting records in anti-posting, recently. I think two posts for the entire last month is definitely a high. Rather than try to summarize all that's been going on, let me share with you my excuses to give a window into the last few weeks.

We're Meetin' Big Time | Covenant Life Church has grown significantly in the last few years. This is something God has done, and it is both a blessing and a challenge. With the blessing of more people comes the challenge of imparting the heart of our church to so many newcomers. For the foreseeable future, we have added meetings for two large groups for teaching on doctrine and life, one for all singles -- aptly named The Big Meeting -- and one for all married couples -- The Family Room. More big meetings means more tech requirements and less blogging.

Mediocrity is Liquid | One things I've learned this fall is that even a small crack in leadership can allow mediocrity to seep into an organization. Over the spring and summer, I think I made too many decisions where I compromised slightly on important values or I failed to fully expend the mental energy and communication capital required to lead effectively. Lately, I've been trying to focus my mind energy and word capital on the people here at Covenant Life. This has meant less for blogdom.

Now I've got a suprise for you: That's all I have time to write now!

I do hope to be back regularly, though less frequently, so we'll see you next go-round.
