What I value most.

I figured since I have already explained why core values are so important that now I could share my list of values. As I posted earlier my list of values most closely resembled that of National Community Church so I have copied them for the time being. Of course what they mean and what I mean may be different. In fact I changed one of the items because it did not accurately say what I believed. So with out further banter, here is my list of core
values.

  • Expect the unexpected
  • Irrelevance is irreverence
  • Love people when they least expect it and least deserve it
  • Playing it safe is risky
  • Pray like it depends on God and work like it depends on you
  • Everyone is accepted
  • Everything is an experiment
  • You cannot out give God
  • Maturity does not equal conformity
  • It’s never too late to be who you might have been
  • Do it right and do it big

I changed “everyone is accepted” from the original from National Community Church which was, “everyone is invaluable and irreplaceable”. The reason I changed was simply a semantics issue. In its original form I felt that it gave the feeling that we can not afford to let anyone leave. After all they are “irreplaceable”. I agree that everyone should be welcomed but I also believe not everyone should be kept. I’ll explain that more in later posts along with posts on each of the above core values.
