Blogging from Dawn. Sheesh. Ordinarily I'd apologize, but have heard from those much wiser than I that's lame.
So where to begin? Wow. A ton has been happening & I've been learning a lot. For instance, on the personal side I've learned:
- There's a limit to how many Christmas lights can be strung together before the fuses blow.
[good to know BEFORE spending 3.5 hrs putting them on the house.] Very disappointing to plug in the last string & watch them each blow in sequence... And yes, I did check each bulb, Clark
- When baking, accuracy is important. Not enough flour makes for cookies that are impossible to scrape off baking sheets
- Offering to host holiday parties three weekends in a row during the month of December is grounds for insanity. [I have a stockpile of ginger ale leftover if anyone's interested]
On the professional side, I've had a lot of organizations ask me about changing their name lately. Church Marketing Sucks shared the results of a poll they recently did on the same topic
Names are a big deal. Changing a name is even bigger, so I'm planning to dedicate the next couple of posts sharing what we've learned over the years when helping organizations chart through these waters. Specifically:
- Assessing Your Current Name :: How do we know if it's worth changing or keeping?
- Denominational Affiliation :: Should we include it or go with something more neutral?
- Ideas :: Where do we start?
- Telling Others :: Is there a right or wrong way?
