The Lord said to Aaron, "You, your sons and your father's family are to bear the responsibility for offenses against the sanctuary, and you and your sons alone are to bear the responsibility for offenses against the priesthood..." Numbers 17: 5 -
Jesus asked me to ask you, "Do you know what God wants you to do?"
This is not a easy question to answer. All ten Anglican Mission bishops had a Bishops' retreat this May in Denver. We invited a world-class church consultant, coaching specialist and Fuller D. Min. professor, Dr. Terry Walling, to lead us for three days so that we start this journey of finding our Major Role. We used three days to draft our Major Role. Then Terry called us on a one-on-one basis two weeks later to have a better version on our Major Role.
You may remember that I was so happy to copy and paste to this blog (around mid-May) the Major Role Dr. Walling helped me to find . But praise to the Lord that I had a two full days coaching at Terry's home in Chico, California just two days ago. He used 15 hours to help me re-think, re-define and re-write our ACiC Mission, Vision, Purpose and a four years strategic plan and also my major role.
Wow! This is so wonderful. Then he is going to have three full days helping our ACiC/AI Leadership Team next Monday to Wednesday in Seattle to make this draft into a final version and announce that in our AGM in October 15, 2010 in our 1st Canadian Regional Conference with Bishop Chuck Murphy as the main speaker.
I do hope that you have a coach to help you to do that. This week is a blessed and powerful week. On Monday in Pasadena California, I went to see Dr. Eddie Gibbs, the Reader and Mentor of my Fuller D.Min. thesis. Then on, I went to see my coach, Dr. Gil, who has been coaching me for the past six years. And then I saw Dr. Walling from Thursday to Friday.
I am now typing this in the Vancouver airport. In two minutes time, I have to get on board the plane with Michelle to Toronto for Confirmation service this Sunday at Toronto Emmanuel church and various meeting there. So, this is the most I can do now and I'll add in the Bible passages and songs when I am in Toronto late tonight at 10p.m.. I am sorry for that, as the internet in my hotel was down yesterday!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to know clearly what you want me to do. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
My son, Ignatius, completed his three weeks mission in Ethiopia a few days ago.We are so joyful to welcome him home and know that he experienced God mightily in that three weeks. His one word of experience is "JOY"! Please click this link to read his wonderful sharing:http://21ethiopiandays.wordpress.com/
