We all do it, end our day by scrolling our Facebook feed, scanning photos and updates and articles to see what our social network is up to. The problem is that this “Scrollaxing” may actually be making you miserable, studies show. University of Copenhagen shows that this practice is making us miserable and unhappy. To fix it, either cut back, avoid certain sections or “it may be difficult to change one’s way of using Facebook. If this is the case, one should consider quitting Facebook for good” researchers say.

Baptist Pastor Desiree Allen was beyond surprised when she found out that she was not only pregnant out of wedlock, but with twins. Instead of allow herself to be “slut shamed” she vowed to bring the word of God until she could “no longer waddle onto stage.” Her Senior pastor and fellow staff have stepped in with love and support rather than condemnation.

  • For whom is your ministry targeted? Does your hospitality team go out of their way to help single parents get in the door on a Sunday morning? What would it look like to make improvements in this area?
  • Leadership voices– Do you have diversity of income and parental status on your committees and boards to ensure that your community is serving effectively?

  • People change: When you take at someone’s past decisions, physical or otherwise, they may not reflect their present course.
  • The Lord looks at the heart– Would someone with tattoo “sleeves” be welcome to work in your children’s ministry?
  • Congregational Reaction– We all want to believe that our congregation wouldn’t whisper or avoid a new member with piercings or tattoos, but maybe this is a theory worth testing.

  • Negative Images: Whether earned or not, most Christians are viewed in a negative light due to more extreme evangelists like this, so our starting point in outreach will be regaining trust.
  • Changing Conversations:Whether highlighting the story of St. Nicholas or the gift of Jesus, there are positive ways to change Christmas conversations without yelling.
  • What Would You Do? While this man screamed at people at the mall, how can Christians seek positive ways to publicly impact the Christmas experiences of others?

Cancer survivor Greg Thomas was featured in a series of headlines eight years ago because he spent his treatment days restoring a small chapel known as Most Holy Redeemer Catholic Church. While Thomas beat cancer back then, with it only returning recently, the church took issue with the repairs he had made after collecting more than $70,000 in donations and banned him from the property. Thomas argues that the church has become a show piece instead of a source of community unity.

Why this story matters for church leaders: Sometimes a member’s generosity can lead to problems when leaders don’t have a clear vision or communicate it effectively.
  • Blessing or Curse?The generosity of Greg Thomas was striking, but the church’s mishandling of it failed to make the most of it, leaving the church in a difficult position.
  • Communication and Vision Matter:If a story ever hammered home the importance of a clearly communicated vision, this is it! Thomas saw the chapel as a place of hope that could serve as a community gathering place, but trustees saw it as a private cemetery chapel.
  • Legal Concerns:Every renovation and building project comes with challenges, such as ADA accessibility, so consider those details before launching a project, especially in an old church.

Pastor Mark Driscoll of Trinity Church shared in a recent video message that he doesn’t try to fight against the story of Santa Claus. Instead, he focuses his kids on the story of Bishop St. Nicholas, who was known for his generosity, helping families in dire need and helping the church grow. Driscoll suggested that certain elements of the St. Nicholas story can help children understand the modern story of Santa.

Why this story matters for church leaders: Pastor Mark Driscoll suggests a positive way for parents to engage the Santa Claus story by offering a kind of Christian alternative.
  • Santa Antagonism:Christians have a reputation for being negative about Santa Claus, but Driscoll’s suggestion about St. Nicholas has been a popular Christian alternative to the Santa story.
  • Nicholas, Abolitionist: While it’s hard to know what’s legend and what isn’t about St. Nicholas, his most popular stories involve him helping families in need, saving children from being sold into slavery.
  • Leaving All Behind:Nicholas also allegedly gave away most of his family’s wealth, offering a striking alternative story of generosity for the holidays.

This year the debate over church services on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day have been resolved with the answer: both. In fact, 63% of pastors reported that they would hold services on both days.

  • Christmas Matters: The majority of churches recognize the opportunities that come with offering several services over the Christmas season.
  • Traditions Differ: Every family has different traditions for attending church on Christmas eve or Christmas day, so it makes sense to offer different options.
  • Sunday Services and Christmas:As some churches debated whether or not to have a Christmas day service on Sunday, many decided that the opportunities outweighed the drawbacks.

While some have argued that churches enjoy too many tax free benefits, the impact of churches on local economies has been estimated at 1.2 trillion annually and is especially key in urban centers.

  • Tax Free to Serve: Does your church have a strong sense of mission and involvement in your community?
  • Communication Matters: From congregation members to community leaders, take time to highlight your church’s service and involvement so that more people can get involved and value your church.
  • Benefits vs. Burdens:Some communities see churches as property tax and traffic liabilities, so communicating our mission and benefits may be one of the most important first steps in effective outreach for a growing church.
