Over the last two days, the staff of Hope Church, Tupelo, and I have been at Catalyst, a leadership-training event in Atlanta. Although originally designed only for young leaders, Catalyst seems to welcome any and all. Speakers were as diverse as Rick Warren (does anyone on the planet not know who Rick is?) and Shane Claiborne (a young monk living in the inner city of Philadelphia) and Patrick Lencioni (a business consultant, author of Death by Meeting, the Five Dysfunctions of a Team, and a dozen other leadership books)

Random notes and thoughts from Catalyst:

*Samuel Johnson once said, “people need to be reminded more than they need instruction.”

According to Patrick Lencioni, God gets the most glory from the church that takes on the biggest problems

According to Rick Warren, the two most important questions in life:

1. “What shall I do with Jesus?” (the question Pilate asked)

2. “What is that in your hand?” (the question God asked Moses)

According to John Maxwell, the greatest lesson he intends to leave to the next generation is – intentionally add value to people everyday.

How to add value to anyone’s life:

1. Value people – if you don’t value people, you devalue them.

2. Make yourself more valuable – keep growing. Put “good stuff” inside yourself

3. Know and relate to what others value – listen to people

4. Do things that God values – think eternal consequences
