I’ve spent the past couple of days in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho (just outside of Spokane, Washington) working with Church Development Fund on how they can better serve the local church.

Church Development Fund is this amazing not-for-profit Christian investment and lending fund that is a major contributor to bringing God’s Kingdom to earth right here and right now. Not only do they lend money to help churches expand (many banks won’t lend to churches), but they also give money to help plant new churches all over the country.

After being in business for more than 50 years, they are considered to be a wonderful investment opportunity for people like you and me. Go to www.cdfonline.org to find out how you can become involved.

A good bit of travel time from coast to coast. On one flight out I finished the book, Made To Stick, by Chip Heath and Dan Heath. ANYONE who is in the communication business MUST read this book!

During my layover in Denver I picked up the book, Busting Vegas, by Ben Mezrich. It’s the true story of some MIT grads who developed a system to beat the blackjack tables at casinos around the world. I couldn’t put it down!

Okay, back into meetings.
