How Dropping Your Phone in the Toilet Makes You Reconsider Priorities

Yesterday, my wife had a great day. We've been working on our health as a family and I bought her a Fitbit. But, where there were rays of sunshine spilling into the windows of her life, there seemed to be a small grey rain cloud following me. My middle son had an indoor soccer tournament on Saturday, so I woke up in the middle of the night thinking about soccer. Having trouble sleeping, I decided to head downstairs to think. So, I grabbed my glasses and phone and went to the bathroom......and promptly dropped my phone in the toilet! I ...

The very thought that my mac-n-cheese is raised in a small cage- never to see the light of day sometimes keeps me up at night.

Video: Would You Let These Guys Lead a Small Group?

Fun Friday: Each Friday I'm going to share a funny or interesting video I've found online. Most will relate to small groups, but some might be about church in general. Would you let these guys lead a small group? http://youtu.be/34G_R0svxWk I love that God uses normal people to do cool things. If God could use the guys in this video, He can use you as a small group leader.
