Seven Cities

I am sitting in the Grand Junction, Colorado airport on my way home.  I will go to Salt Lake and Minneapolis before I reach Pittsburgh, which means I will have touched down in eight cities on this trip -- Atlanta, Bentonville, Houston, Phoenix, Grand Junction, Salt Lake City, Minneapolis and then finally Pittsburgh.  One thing I have always said is that if you have seen one airport, you have pretty much seen them all. 

I had a great visit to First Assembly in Grand Junction.  Pastors Ted and Tami are doing a super job and the people are warm, friendly and open to the purpose message.  I spoke twice in the church's Stir conference and then met with 24 people one-on-one over a three day period.  With most of them, I used my battery of three profiles to help them understand who they are and how that relates to their purpose.  I try to give people new ideas of how they can move forward to be even more purposeful and productive.  One man said that quality questions lead to a quality life.  I try to give people better questions to ask about who they are and what they should be doing.

I have a busy weekend in Pittsburgh and then will go back to the Washington City Mission two days next week to do what I did here in Grand Junction.  Then I will spend three days working at Allegheny Center Alliance Church in Pittsburgh where I have taken more responsibilities lately.  More on that in a future post.

I was so busy on Tuesday that I didn't watch any of the inauguration.  I pray for the success of our new Commander-in-Chief.  it is unfortunate that the Chief Justice messed up the oath of office. 

I should be back in a better rhythm and schedule next week to write more.  I have to finish up the series on We Need to Change the Way We Do Church and have a lot more things to share.  Until then, take care and have a great weekend.
