In the beginning of the semester, I wrote about my goal of Personal Discipline. Well, that’s being tested more than I had anticipated. For the class The Church’s Ministry, a group of individuals are selected to be small group leaders, they call us facilitators. I was happy to be chosen to be a facilitator, but less than happy to know that Friday mornings I had to be in class at 7am!
When the alarm blares in my face at 6:30, I keep reminding myself “It’s part of discipline, part of discipline…” The problem is – at 6:30 am on a Friday morning, the last thing I care about is discipline!!
Thankfully I have made it to both of the 7 am classes, and hopefully, that will continue to be the case. But, as our professor Dwight Peterson reminds us during that 7am class, “BBC is a ministry leadership training school.” Of all places to learn to develop discipline, this is it!
