“Reframing Our Why”  Simon Sinek’s TED Talk “How Great Leaders Inspire Action” is the third most popular speech of all-time in the highly acclaimed series. If you are unfamiliar with “TED Talks”, they are a series of short speeches on the themes of “Technology, Entertainment, and Design”. They are popular with innovative business leaders, and Sinek’s talk strikes a chord with individuals and groups seeking to communicate in an inspiring way. By explaining what he calls the “Golden Circle”, he describes that great leaders and companies communicate their message by starting with why they do what they do rather than what they do. The thought process is that people are most inspired when they know the purpose and meaning of something rather than simply knowing what the product or message is.  I saw a video of Sinek’s talk three years ago, and it has stuck with me ever since. From a congregational perspective it reminds me to always think through why we do the things that we do. I want there to be purpose and meaning behind why we are doing what we are doing. This is why we made a point to reevaluate our mission statement once we assembled our Advisory Lead Team (and in case you missed it we adopted a revised  version, which is “Welcoming all to experience, connect, grow, and share the love and hope of Christ”). It is important to know what we as a church are all about, and we reaffirmed that we want to point people towards the love and hope of Christ, while including a process of discipleship (experience, connect, grow, and share) for how to point people towards it. This mission should motivate all that we do as a church, and the process of discipleship should be a part of what we all hope to live into as part of our church.  This Sunday we will be talking about our individual purpose and “why”, which Jesus explained in a different way than we might expect. Often times we think of our purpose as being tied to “what we do”, but Jesus saw it as connected to something bigger than that. As we dive deeper into our new series “Frames”, we are going to try and reframe the way we think of our individual purposes by looking at what Jesus said our lives should be focused on. I cannot wait until Sunday to “welcome you all” to come and “experience, connect, and grow” in “the love and hope of Christ”, so that we can all be sent out to “share” it with the world.  Anthony
