It’s been a somewhat odd week. Been processing some interesting news since Sunday, working on how it will effect Discovery and what I need to do. To say I’ve been preoccupied is probably an understatement. I can say I’m feeling better about things at this point in the week than I was earlier.
Came at a good time though….on Sunday, Dusty Martin is speaking again. I really like it when he speaks at Discover and I know a lot of other people do too. I think it’s great that we have a church with our fair share of gifted and capable communicators. I’ve been thinking about that and I think that might be one of our strengths. From what I remember, we’ve had at least half a dozen different people speak and only 3 of them were ever part of staff. Dusty was, and I’m so glad that him stepping down from staff didn’t sour his relationship with Discovery. I know it actually strengthened ours, and like I’ve said, we’ve been blessed to have him.
Then next week Frank Lodeserto will be speaking. Frank is a doctor at Pitt County Memorial Hospital and a PARTner here at Discovery. Come to find out, when he was in medical school in Grenada, he helped start a church there – and grew it to about 200 people (all while in med school)! I’m excited to hear him speak too! We’ve definitely been blessed.
I think that’s a sign of health. Anytime you have people who can step up and do your job (and even do it better) you’ve created a healthy environment. I love that about Discovery.
