Love watching Christian celebs setting a great example in their community!  Chip and Joanna Gaines, of HGTV have invited a Waco pastor and his congregation to hold their Sunday church services at Magnolia Market at the Silos. The congregation from Church Under the Bridge had to move the church service due to construction. Aand after hearing the news, Chip Gaines offered up the use of the lawn at Magnolia Market free of charge. The pastor at Church Under the Bridge also said the couple donated over 50K to the church’s “Mission Waco” nonprofit grocery store!

A man named Ken Capron from Maine says he wants to buy an old cruise ship to help solve a homelessness issue plaguing the city where he lives.

Ken’s idea is to float a new neighborhood to solve two problems in Portland, Maine: the placement of a homeless shelter and the lack of affordable housing.

What’s your kid destroyed? A two year old sent his family’s University of Utah Football season ticket money through the shredder! Little Leo put an envelope full of $1000 + cash through the shredder!  When have you laughed so hard you also cried? When has teaching your kid to clean actually back fired on you? http://ksltv.com/401511/two-year-old-sends-familys-season-ticket-savings-shredder/

A teacher named Julia Brown in Texas created the “I NEED” box for her students. The Cafe Mom blog says, “Ms. Brown’s school did a survey and asked students to “name an adult on campus they felt they could go to with anything.” About 10 percent of our student population answered ‘no one.’ Ms. Brown noticed a couple of those responses came from her students and it weighed on her all summer. The ‘I Need’ box was born from that idea. She said, “It was my desire to make sure my students knew I was there for them no matter what they needed, large or small.” What would you put in the “I NEED!” box today? Post your needs and give them over to God!


Albert Lexie shined shoes at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s Children’s Hospital for 30 years. Recently he passed away, and he donated ALL of his tip money to the sick children! That’s over $202,000 to the hospital’s Free Care Fund. It provides medical care to uninsured and under-insured children in his city! Full story here: https://www.today.com/news/meet-albert-lexie-late-shoeshiner-who-donated-all-his-tips-t140371

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
