Great post Justin. I have just left a season of success, and I believe God is bringing me into a season of reflection and realignment. Just started today and already feel a little disoriented. Great timing on your post, and great reminder of God's faithfulness in seasons.

Our God, by his very nature, is creative and relational. Being created in his image means we are too. That's why I love the structure, or lack of, for Cultivate. I am looking forward to connecting w/others whose kingdom mindset is to work together. Talking heads replaced by conversation, questions, ideas, dreams. I expect it will be a God-honoring gathering. Can't wait to meet online friends/encouragers there.

So true and why its a little scary to lead. Also why character of a leader trumps all other traits. Good character elicits behavior to be modeled.

Steve - your words are awesome. Love how you use Twitter to be hands and feet - can be a real place to connect as the body of Christ even tho separated by thousands of miles. Thank you for your faithful prayer coverage!

I've been told Twitter is for narcissistic people and I just have to laugh. Maybe they have a) never tried it or b) have different motivations for using it. I began twittering out of curiosity, and would just 'listen'. But eventually I began to share more of myself, and my faith, online. Twitter has made it possible to connect with people with common ministry interests, and those who are several steps ahead of where I want to be. The 'playing field' has been leveled. I have found many high-profile ministry peeps enjoy connecting on Twitter, and their wealth of experience and wisdom is available for the asking. Sounds like they're being humble, not narcissistic to me.

I personally had a crisis last week when my husband had a heart attack, followed by open heart surgery. While paramedics crowded me and our sons out of the way, I jumped on twitter w/my fervent prayer request for my husband. The result? Immediate and mind-blowing prayer coverage and offers of help from people I have never met, but who felt connected enough to me to love on my family with prayer.
Hmmm that's not narcissistic, is it?
