got this from Gracepoint today, thought it was pretty good:

"We often surround ourselves with the people we most want to live with, thus forming a club or clique, not a community."[...]"it takes grace, shared-vision, and hard work to form a community."-Phillip Yancey

this kind of made me think about our James verse this week, 2:1-13, about favoritism.

but yea, it was a very good service.

dormal was aite. the DJ was kinda whack. not all too great but overall i think it was alright. its good for what the moneys worth. was only 5 dollars so yea lol. cant believe some people were like "its way better than high school" haha definite no. but i think it was more mature than high school. in high school, ERRbody be tryna...............yea. lol but yea. had some disappointments at dance. didnt really expect some things from some people, dance-wise. i knew what i was gonna expect at dormal before hand but didnt really expect from some ppl. that was the reason why i didnt wanna go kinda cus didnt wanna be exposed to that kind of stuff but yea. i would say it was more mature than hs. dont really know how to handle this situation, something to pray about. things did can be justified both ways whether appropriate or not in terms of opinion. but idk, the ultimate answer, might be no. but its not for me to say. dont know if i should address the issue or was it really no biggie? idk. maybe i should let it go. idk. guess the only thing i can do is pray about it. maybe sometimes accountability does involve going out of the boundary and talking about what seems uncomfortable. idk. but yeaa. overall Dormal was good. those that didnt go, didnt miss much. lol these are my thoughts but im not trippin over it, yea we shouldnt judge. :]

Leadership Lunch

so today i went to the aacf leadership lunch. they had core leaders from the aacfs all over norcal. it was good, had some activities and got a lot out of it. of all the issues within fellowships, a lot of times we dont know how to deal with them. from the Q and A panel, they asked some of the questions. this is one of the main things i got out of it.

within our fellowship, there are ppl that come frm different denominations and churches. often times the value are different and we tend to often want to argue and defend that OUR church values are right as opposed to others. but fellowships and leadership isnt about whos right or wrong. rather, have grace with one another. agree to disagree. fellowships are to bring non-believers to Christ and allow for the bonding of current believers. a place for them to be. and the sole foundation of all this is Love. this agape love, this passion, this grace, this mercy, that God has shown us and expressing that to others.

in terms of leaders, i think we must remember that with this "leadership" position, we are all students and we arent that much different frm one another in terms of age and situation. so looking to follow one of these leaders and really relying on them for mentorship might not be a great choice b/c they lack the wisdom and experience. im not saying dont look up to them but treating them as a young pastor might not be the best choice. i say save that for a church and looking for people that are certified and really have that creditial.

but AACF is looking good b/c we MIGHT have a new staffer soon! hurray! and some changes of leadership is made. so thats all good. but still, definitely much prayer to AACF and pray for its advancement of its kingdom and for growth. amen.
