I had plans to share a long post today about my experiences at Leadership Institute 2013 this past week. Unfortunately due to many different things it's just not quite ready yet. I'm shooting for tomorrow.
I've been busy with a few projects I have yet to share that I can't wait to explore with you. One, is my new position of Contemporary Music Director at Central United Methodist Church in Lawrence, KS. I have hit the ground running and playing a little catch up to prepare for worship for the last few weeks. This hasn't left much time for writing but I am confident my schedule will settle down once a few more things are organized in advance.
I have also been doing a ton of reading about the United Methodist Church and the future of our denomination with an eye towards worship and the arts. We are looking at ways to rethink what it means to be a church for the future.
In addition to all that reading I have created the rough draft of a vision statement that I have been mulling around for the past few days:
Easier said than done for sure but it's a great goal and one that I feel is worth striving for. I can't wait to see this evolve in the next couple months.
So, how are things with you? Are things getting busier for you this month? What are you doing to stay sane?
