  Lessons From Bees

Remembering Pastor Toure’ Roberts’ vision for 2018 of Thinking Big:

  • We are a big church

  • Focused on the big picture

  • Building big people

  • Making a big impact

    I will always remember the woman who said, “I attended class on Tuesday, and I read your daily reflection. Last Sunday I wanted to end it all but I went to church instead.” That’s why we do what we do - and how we impact people’s lives in a big way. And maybe we’ll hear about some of those impactful things we do; others we may never hear about but we serve, and we plant, and we sow. In the end, we’ll be building those big people and making a big impact in our church, our city and our world.

  • Something I read the other day says it well, and I call it “learning from bees.” Every creature in a beehive, every single honey bee, has a purpose — a role it follows its entire life. Guard bees protect the hives, nurse bees take care of the babies, and architect bees build the hive’s hexagon structure, making it mathematically perfect in every way. There are even undertaker bees who remove the dead from the hive and fly 100 yards to dispose of the bodies.

  • Certainly, humans have purpose in their lives. But why are bees so single-minded and committed to that purpose? It isn’t just for the good of the queen. It’s for the good of each other, for their whole community. That’s us — we’re here for the good of each other, for the whole community.

Register for the “My Collective Conference” live on-line conference, Friday evening Oct. 19 and Saturday, October 20. I will be one of several dynamic speakers you can hear live and/or recorded to listen to at your leisure.

Also see my facebook page - Barbra Ellen Russell - for a one-hour facebook live video with Christi Miranda as we talked about “men’s brains and women’s brains are different.” It’s funny, fascinating and I think mandatory information for both men and women as we work on communication and understanding.
