We all want a slice of the pie. (It's thanksgiving… after all!)
But not when the “slice of the pie” represents what we are personally responsible for messing up.
Right? Think of a situation right now that makes you really frustrated, that stirs up emotion in you, that immediately makes you feel like aiming the blame.
If there was something you could do to change the situation, or make sure it doesn't happen ever again, would you?
The way you do that might surprise you. In fact, the Bible might surprise you. It's more practical than you think.
Join us thanksgiving weekend and bring a friend!
Starting Point — Part 2 — Own It | Andy Stanley
One reason history repeats itself is that we don’t own our part of our history. And the reason you don’t own it is there’s nothing to own—it wasn’t your fault! But if something important has come to an end and you are starting over, you must look back and own your part in order to move ahead. Your best bet for a successful future is to own your share of the past.

Starting Point — Part 1 — Three Myths | Andy Stanley
Many of us don’t like to follow directions. But there’s a price to pay for rushing into a situation without knowing what we’re doing. We get things wrong. And by the time we go back, undo everything we messed up, and then do it correctly, we’ve wasted more time than if we’d just followed the directions to begin with.
The consequences are usually mild when we ignore the directions for repairing a computer or assembling a child’s toy. But the price of rushing into a life situation can be steep. What if there were directions for the choices we make in life? What if we could avoid repeating past mistakes when we find ourselves starting over?
