Be all you can be! The Army isn’t the only one who urges us to reach our full potential; the church has picked up on it as well. As a friend of ours is recently told us, “My passion is helping people reach their potential, all God created them to be!”
If “you want to be part of something extraordinary… something bigger than yourself,”but wonder how to get started, I’ve got a great book for you. I’ve been reading Butterfly in Brazil, hot off the press from Tyndale Publishers. It’s written by Glenn Packiam, a worship leader and songwriter for Desperation Band, and director of the New Life School of Worship at New Life Church in Colorado Springs. (Yes, that New Life Church—and yes, we attend there.)
I sat down after lunch to skim a few pages, and found myself halfway through the book before dinner time. I kept wondering how much of it I could quote here without running afoul of copyright laws, and finally decided to just encourage everyone to read the whole book.
