Early this morning, I caught a quick flight from Love Field to come down to San Antonio. For the next 2 days, I’ll be working with Greg Hawkins, doing a two-day coaching session. Greg was the long-time executive pastor at Willow Creek Community Church in Chicago, and now works with Max Lucado at Oak Hills Church, in addition to doing consulting and coaching. I’m really looking forward to our time together.
As I hadn’t had time for breakfast, I stopped at Jesus’s favorite fast-food joint this AM. I dug out my old Kindle last night and brought it with me (you can see it to the right of my MacBook in the pic.) Man, I’d forgotten how much I love that device. The kid who was setting up the umbrellas on the Chick-fil-A patio asked me, “Sir, what is that tablet thing?” I told him, and he asked, “Does it do any cool stuff?” I said, “No! And that’s why I like it.” It’s just so nice to use a device that can only do one thing: show words on a (digital) page. I don’t like my mind jumping from app to app–I need focus to be effective.
Here’s hoping my time with Greg will be equally focused.
