Well it's about 8 days into 2011. Yes the diet is out the window but the passion isn't. In the last 8 days I've thrown more vision at my senior pastor then he may be comfortable with, let  go of our youth pastor, and began a ravage search for the "next great youth pastor". I know I've learned more watching people around me then I have in a long time. People's reactions, how they respond to difficult situations, lack of response, cowardness, and real friendship. It's funny how you can learn if you stop and smell the mess.
