What's S-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g me now?

Group Life Conference Follow-Up Post #2

I want to make sure I capture my primary take-aways from the conference. So here’s the first one from the pre-conference coaching forum that I attended (see previous post):

I need to be in community!

That’s it! It seems kind of basic, but here’s why I think it was so directed at me. Over the past 6-9 months, I have been doing this groups coaching thing without actually being in a group. Not only is this somewhat hypocritical, it’s sad. We were created for community. To say that our coaching meetings offer community isn’t actually correct as these meetings have really been more business type meetings planning for the upcoming season (not a bad thing, but not community). In other words, being a coach does not exclude us from entering into community.

So here I am now, trying to figure out how to get plugged back into life giving community.

How about you?

Stay tuned for more…
