A Word From Steve Jones
January 15th, 2018
The Lord blessed me with a mentor for many years. Dr. Roy Lawson was a friend, coach, and confidante. I learned much from him. A few of his “Lawsonisms” were as follows:
“Learn the lessons of weakness.”
“Behind every inactive member is a story to be heard and a hurt to be healed.”
“In change people feel alone even if everyone is going through it.”
Roy shared many more golden nuggets that left me often wanting explanation.
I recently rediscovered these “Turning Point Lessons” that emerged out of a strategic planning retreat of our New Life Fellowship staff team in 2010. At this point, the church was twenty-two years old. What struck me as I re-read these is how timeless and relevant they are for today. The following are my edits and summary out of that discussion:
Next week I’m going to share some “golden nuggets” from some of our veteran and retired Fellowship pastors and missionaries. We can learn so much from one another if we will listen, remain teachable, and ensure a humble posture. The Lord is not finished with any of us.
What a great promise!
Have a blessed week!
