One-Liners to Remember 1 (of 5)

This week we are having our December Event; which is a combination of training, vision, fun, a Christmas party and fellowship.  This is an awesome several day event; in which the entire staff from all 12 campuses and central staff along with their spouses to get together.  It kicks off tomorrow for Campus Pastors and Central Team leaders and the entire staff will get together on Wednesday.  I am really looking forward to it! 

There are always some great one-liners, moments and motivational quotes that come from this event.  I am going to share some one-liners and quotes that really speak to me in this weeks blog posts.  We can learn so much from quotes and one-liners; if we just listen.  This week’s blog posts will be a series of One-liners to Remember.  Here are a couple of one-liners to kick off the week.  One-liners to Remember: 

“You had me at hello”- Jerry Maguire 

  • Question: How much do first impressions matter?

“You can’t please everyone…so why try?”-Craig Groeschel 

  • Question:  Why do we spend so much time trying to please people?   

Craig is sharing some great lessons this week, many of which are one-liners in a series of posts entitled 40 Lessons from a 40-Year-Old Pastor.

Share your thoughts and favorite one-liners!

Mike Gundy Goes Off!

I am not an Oklahoma State University football fan; however I have always liked OSU Head Football Coach Mike Gundy and his candor with the media. During Gundy’s post-game press conference following a win over Texas Tech, Gundy went off about an article written by Jenni Carlson about former OSU starting quarterback Bobby Reid. You can check out the article here.  I thought that it was interesting that the article talks about puking and so did Gundy.

Watch this video rant in it’s entirety and  share your thoughts!  Consider these questions: Do we need this same passion, as it relates to Satan’s attacks, Christian Selfishness and the state of the American Church?  When was the last time you, or someone that you know went on a rant and stood up for something that you/they believed in?  Is it necessary to “Go Off” sometimes; in order to get your point across?
