Good News Leo

You can like them.

You can ignore them.

You can get fussy about them

But people aren’t going away.

This came to my mind yesterday as I was honored to share in front of the dear souls in Leo, Indiana.

Pastor Dave walks in a congenial competence. I fear he might consider that statement to be a left-handed compliment or even an insult, but he would misunderstand.

The American public-at-large needs congenial competence.

We’re constantly tempted to be unfriendly while infested by excuses for failure instead of showing a steady leadership which offers a sense of comfort.

There’s something wonderful about being congenial. Saying hello to your fellow-human without scrunching your brow with suspicion may be the definition of God’s love.

And also taking a few moments to figure out what you can do, supplying an effort equal to your promise is a stroke of genius.

I don’t ever want to lie to anyone.

I wear my weaknesses as proudly as I display my strengths.

My weaknesses tell people they can trust me because I haven’t tried to hide them. My strengths can exhilarate them because they understand that I’ve taken the time to work on myself and try to pursue the second mile.

I suppose when I finished up in Leo yesterday, there were individuals who would have said we had a morning of revival, but without being coy, I would contend that we had a morning of “vival.”

I’m not so sure any of us were truly alive until we got together–because the worst prison we can find for ourselves is a cave of our own misunderstanding. We need one another, because without that contact, we think we are smarter than we actually are.

I so enjoyed the people. I loved hearing their stories. I was thrilled with the look of hope on their faces.

I am proud to say that I joined Pastor Dave in trying to be a congenial, competent person.

For this is my prayer:

I want to bring you joy and deliver the little dab of talent I can as efficiently as possible.
