    I’m stupid?

    I agree, however it is easier to say that from the stage and with the platform that Chandler has than it is for the typical church leader to do. The voices that are constantly surrounding leaders are saying “this is how Hybels/Driscoll/Bell/Keller/etc etc are doing it, we should too.” I’d love to hear some of these guys talk about how they did or didn’t get sucked into that in the early days.

    I think almost all of them did…. they matured! If not they spend the next 7 years in conflict only to get spit out into bagging groceries and wondering what happened!

    I enjoy leaning on others to reinforce things that are already stirring in my spirit. I think for me looking there for the A to Z is where it is easy to get off and begin to simply try to model after someone. I have done this before, it only left me personally feeling unfulfilled because I knew that it wasn’t being shared out of my personal burden or passion. So, I keep those greats around, but now for me I like to work from what has begun in me and then perhaps try to see if one of these heavy hitters has shared on the same verses etc… I guess you could say they are modern, audio or video commentaries for me that help me to add to, strip away or focus more precisely on what the Word is saying.
