Solutions not Problems

While I am talking to myself. Let me continue for a moment.

1. Everyone can see the problems. Whether it be the church, government or local basketball team, the problems are usually evident.

2. The real need is for more people to be invested in finding solutions and not merely complaining in order to somehow make themselves feel “smarter” or “better”.

3. In order to find solutions, you must understand the entire “disease” and not simply the most prevelant “symptoms.” Listening is the key to diagnosis.

4. In order to implement solutions, you must have the 1. courage to fail, 2. energy to continuously communicate, 3. passion to make a difference, and 4. determination to persevere.

I'm one of the pastors at First United Methodist Church in Lexington, Kentucky where I've served for the past thirteen years. The sub-title of this blog is "Grace is no accident" which happens to be the defining reality of my life. God's grace (gift) is the reason we have breath in our lungs and hope in our hearts.
