DECEMBER – PAUSE
It’s December—which means we’ve officially entered the month that, if we’re not careful, will eat church communicators alive. But you, my friends, are Courageous Storytellers, and you’re not gonna let that happen. Right? Right. (Hopefully you read that as “Right!” and not “Riiiiiight.”)
To help you wrap up 2017, we’re inviting you to press pause in the middle of the craziness to do three things:
- Reflect on the amazing things that happened in your church over the past year and celebrate all that God has done.
- Think ahead to begin planning for a sustainable, healthy communications ministry in 2018.
- Laugh. It’s good for you. It’s good for the people around you. Plus, laughing burns calories, and, well, Christmas goodies have a lot of them.
Wishing you the happiest of Christmas seasons. Emmanuel!
Peace to you,
