I had forgotten about this song until I was looking through some cd’s the other day. The lyrics made me laugh and maybe they’ll do that for you also. It is a funny way of putting it, but it rings true to the way that Jesus changes people. Continue reading “Changing and Grace”

Sheeran’s A Team and Purpose – Part 2

Once after playing paintball all day and getting dehydrated, I had thought that I was really hungry. Once my friend and I got to the restaurant we were going too, we ended up drinking two full pitchers of water each while waiting for our food. Turns out we were both simply really thirsty.

It speaks to our culture’s view of longing and how to find something that satisfies. I want to go into this more, but the reality of our lives is that we were created to be addicted. The issue is what we’re addicted to. Continue reading “Sheeran’s A Team and Purpose – Part 1”

CRM – Technology isn’t the Solution

At Conversatio Morum, we’re currently in the middle of talking about Client Relationship Management (CRM) systems and rethinking them as Church Relationship Management systems. We’ve previously intro’d, talked about the purpose of doing so, talked about different types of CRM’s, and why you might not want to utilize a CRM solution. You can review those posts here, here, here, and here.

Today, we are going to talk about why a CRM system isn’t actually the solution. Continue reading “CRM – Technology isn’t the Solution”
