Several top notch thinkers in the EFCA have put together a 4 week online class that I’ve been given the opportunity to participate in. It’s focus is intentional living. Making sure that spiritual leaders don’t drift aimlessly from project to project, staying busy, but accomplishing jack squat. Another danger is being driven by what has been called “the tyranny of the urgent”. Living your day from one crisis to the next. Instead, a healthier, more efficient, and more effective method is proposed: intentional living. This is certainly applicable to the pastor, but not exclusively. This lives and breathes everywhere. I challenge you to think through this with me. Here’s your first assignment and post it in the response fields and engage one another with it too:
1. What 3 words pop into your mind when you hear the phrase intentional living?
2. What are your three greatest strengths beside B.O. and telling me how I suck?
3. What historical or contemporary person do you know that models intentional living and why? (NO BIBLE CHARACTERS!)
