As I transition to Senior Pastor at Hagan and Union United Methodist Churches I am re-evaluating how to do some things I regularly practiced as a youth director. For one twitter was  one of the main ways to communicate. I imagine I will be still tweeting regularly, but the urgency of tweeting will be probably decline as a primary way of communication as well as move down my priority list. This twitter info-graphic I saw on Orange Leaders blog helped shed some light. Mainly, my main demographic (rural) is not really on twitter. Does this help you consider ways to manage your tweeting?

Last month Warren Sapp, a former professional football player, filed for bankruptcy. I thought this called for a post becuase Sapp was one of my heros growing up. I was a HUGE Buccaneer fan. At first I wondered what does this mean for my child hood and all the times I wanted to be like Sapp on the field? But then I pulled back said what can I learn from this?

  1. The decisions we make always affect more than just the moment we are in. Our decisions also effect our future, our family, our finances, and maybe even someone who looks up to us.
  2. There are consequences to our actions. Sometimes they are painful, public, and embarrassing.
  3. We can come back. Things are not looking good for Sapp who may be sued for defamation by another football player in the future. I believe Sapp may be down but he is not out. We can always chose to look for the best in people and root for them. I wish Sapp the best.
