We've been really busy in North Idaho. I haven't had time to shave or get a haircut for a while. I also haven't taken a lot of time to focus on or talk about missions. On my desk is a bright shinny (unread) new book I've had since spring called Breaking the Missional Code by Ed Stetzer. I know part of NorthStar's health depends on us having a missional mindset both in our community and around the world. It is hard to try to adjust my thinking and the thinking of those I lead when we are in an uncertain time in our church. But perhaps this is the best time of all.
