Paperwork Sucks

I am a creative type person which means I don’t do well with organization type things. I am also a controlling person so I like to do everything myself. On top of all of that I am a perfectionist who is terribly afraid of looking like he doesn’t know what he is doing. You add all of those fun personality traits together and you get a Saturday spent making camp packets and paintball trip forms.

I really do have the greatest job in the world, but on days like today I remember why they pay me money. It wasn’t like the work was hard, just tedious stuff that needed to be finished. I did get a chance to do some creative work this evening though. I am working on a series of complete sermons based on the stories that are here on Nailscars.com. I am looking to get some of these published so that will shape when they make it up here.

But in connection with that I am working on a Storyteller’s Revival. It is 5 sermons that are all centered around stories. I have put together 5 of the stories up here into a logical flow and I am looking to start going to churches and such to present them sort of like a revival. The idea I have is to add some creative elements as well, using people from the church to do reader’s theater and other such activities.

The problem is that I don’t really have a good way of getting my name out there. So if there are any of you who think that it would be a cool idea I would love to come to your church. The summer is very full for me, but we could start planning events for in the fall. Just send me an email and we can work out the details.

    Hi Shane.Could you do me a favor and tell me what you mean by revival? I think it is interesting that I read about this today. As the page was loading, I was thinking about what you thought about revivals and such. Just interesting I suppose. Thanks.

    When talking about revival I was just meaning the traditional southern event that we call a revival. Most of the time it is just a series of meetings during the week. So instead of just coming to church once you come every night of the week. Of course in most places they end up being more about evangelism than revival of the saints, but that is a different discussion altogether.

    My thinking was to do a Sunday morning-Wednesday night type thing (which would be 5 sermons). Of course I am flexible to however anyone was looking for things. What I would love to do would be sort of a creative worship "revival", but that would take some advanced planning.

    I have 2 schools of thought on revival. Part of me feels that they are an old custom, but then we will have a week-long meeting and suddenly the church has a different feel for a little while. It is like bringing people together for a special time of worship does actually revive them in some way.

    Interesting. I guess the reason why I ask is because I feel like God is on the move here. I think He is about to send an all out Revival! And I am talking about a radical revolutionary revival that will affect both people inside the church, and non believers in amazing ways! It is like in Narnia, when Aslan is on the move and the ice begins to melt, and the good forces unite, and you know something is about to happen. That is how I feel. God is on the move! Ha, sorry I kinda went off, but yeah…
