I had the privilege of serving an upstart music ministry last night. With the focus and direction they are heading in, it is almost as though you would expect their explanation of the ministry to be “and we happen to sing also.” My hope is that C.O.G. is given a noble work that they might carry through till the day of Christ Jesus…(whenever that day is Camping.) We discussed servant leadership and how the faithful ministry leader, member, etc. will understand that our service to others is what makes the greatest harmony with God. The material is a summary of Ken Blanchard and Phil Hodges The Servant Leader.

We are going to try to get you access to free (or relatively free) material on freedom Fridays to help you grow and broaden perspectives and change paradigms. Todays suggested resources comes from Ligonier Ministry’s $5 Fridays. R.C.
