After reading Mega Church Watch I have come to the conclusion (or maybe I did years ago) that it’s alot easier to form cynical attitudes to things that grow than applaud someone or something thats doing better than you are.
I love the fact that things grow, I don’t sit around being resentful that the tree outside my window is growing do I?
I’m growing too, just differently to the tree. I don’t get hurt and resentful because I’m not growing as fast as the sapling outside – it just grows differently to me.
When something is growing and baring fruit in the form of local and international mission, fostering the growth of individuals in the workplace, then at best give it praise, at worst leave it alone.

Both Windows and Mac users are catered for so that no-one is left out. There is also a DivX version as well for anyone who wants to see it in DVD quality.
Hey if there are any fellow Hillsong weblog writers, let me and susan know about it and we will let you know when we are going to meet. Probably an informal get together somewhere in Sydney! Its a real opportunity to get together with like minded people who use technology to advance the Kingdom of God.
As of next Monday, I will be living close to the heart of Sydney at Waterloo. I’m looking forward to getting out there and sowing into the life of Hillsong on the City side, It’s going to great to be in there permanently working on connecting people into the heartbeat of church life.

Last night we had the 20th aniversary of Hillsong church in at the Sydney Entertainment Centre in the City. It was an awesome night of praise and worship and Tommy Barnett preached an excellent message on becoming a bigger person.
