"When you begin to think outside the box, you often become some other "leaders" lousy follower. That usually costs something" (Andy Rayner)

"Our guardian angels are bored." (Mike Foster)

It's where I feel I'm at these days. “In the second half of life, it is good just to be a part of the general dance. We do not have to stand out, make defining moves, or be better than anyone else on the dance floor. Life is more participatory than assertive, and there is no need for strong or further self-definition” (Falling Upward. Richard Rohr.120).

$2 Discipleship

“Well, here’s the bottom line,” I said. Your present budget is $6 million a year for 3000 people. You have on average five adults come to faith a year, so your CPC is about $1.2 million. The expansion you’re considering will cost another $12 million and seat another 1200 so that would account for another three to four people, but it would push your CPC up to about $2 million per head.” The room was quiet. One elder asked us, “So, what is your CPC at Adullam?” Matt and I looked at each other, Matt did a little figuring and then said, “Two bucks.”
