4 signs of misalignment in your church

4 Signs of Misalignment in Your Church

>>excessive fatigue: when parts in any active system are not aligned there is additional wear-and-tear. Parts and people (like tires) get worn out faster when not aligned.
>>wasted resources: misalignment in an organization causes energy to be expended laterally or even in opposition of the missional goals.
>>unhealthy tension: lack of alignment causes different parts of a system to work at odds with one another – pursing self-created goals in competition with each another and the larger mission.
>>unsteady rhythm: an engine with parts out of alignment causes timing issues resulting in wobbles or vibration in the rhythm of parts moving together. A staff with people out of alignment often misses the healthy rhythm of events and communication as they march to a different beat.

This month on Thursday March 28 at 1:30(CST)

  1. My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find most
    of your post’s to be exactly I’m looking for. Does one offer guest
    writers to write content available for you? I wouldn’t mind writing a post or
    elaborating on most of the subjects you write in relation to here.
    Again, awesome web log!

  2. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the
    costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am nervous
    about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  3. Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer
    for your blog. You have some really good articles and I think I would be a good asset.

    If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write some content for your
    blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an e-mail if interested.
    Many thanks!

  8. 妊娠前から妊娠したばかりの体は、赤ちゃんを作るための細胞分裂期で、妊婦さんは普通の約2倍近くの葉酸が使われると言われています。それで妊娠時には葉酸が体から欠乏しないように葉酸サプリメントを摂るように勧められています。ビタミンB12も葉酸と協力関係にあり、妊娠中の貧血の予防防止にも重要な成分です。葉酸の再利用を助ける作用もあり一緒に摂る事が大事です。葉酸サプリメントは、ビタミンCやビタミンB12、ビタミンB6などのビタミン、ミネラルがバランス良く配合され、食品添加物が含んでいないサプリを選んでください。また、葉酸は光や熱に弱く、空気に触れても酸化し、分解しやすい性質があるので、葉酸サプリメントの保管場所にも気をつけましょう。
