The school has officially begun and we are heading into our third week!
Our first week started on a Thursday so it was mainly orientation to the course and schedule. The following week (a.k.a. last week) was our first week with lectures and such. We had Matt Dawson sharing with us about 'values in ministry'. We talked a lot about personal values and corporate values, along with communicating those values to others. For me the biggest thing I took from the lectures was more so a life challenge...How often do I really think about my own core values? Do my core values align with God's values?
Through understanding some of my personal values and some of the values we hold as a ministry, I feel like I can see how God uses us to outwork those values in various practical ways. I also learned to be more aware of times when we need to re-look at the methods we use to outwork our values...That the value itself is what is important instead of how we actually outwork the value.
Stay tuned for more to come!
