The last two weeks are difficult.
What are we going to do next? What are we going to do with all the things we just did? What went well? What do we need to improve on? Where is God leading me next?
The last two weeks of the year make me feel (from a business/pastor point of view) a lot of pressure. It feels like from now until Jan 1, I have to figure everything out, solve all the problems and start the next year perfectly on Jan 1. All the leadership teams need to be neat and pretty. New leaders in place. Old leaders retired (and honored properly). The budget has to be scrutinized and 2012 needs to be financially planned out. Did we celebrate enough? Are we ready for the next big thing? Are we praying enough? What sermons are the congregations needing to hear from the Bible?
