“I go to where the puck is going, not to where it’s been.” This quote has been credited to Hockey Hall of Fame, Wayne Gretzky. Since the 1980’s it is accepted that Gretzky said this line. When did he say it the first time? Hall of Fame Hockey writer, Jim Matheson says, “Gretzky always used to say this line, parroting his father. His father Walter and Wayne grew up repeating it as if it were hockey catechism.”
Wayne Gretzky got this wisdom and line from his father, Walter. It was enough to help Wayne Gretzky become one of the greatest hockey players ever. It takes vision to know where the puck is going to be next. The same could be said of every person today who wishes to succeed in the future. We will need a clear vision of the future.
Whatever career path you may have taken, younger adults can learn new skills sets from older experienced trustworthy adults. Maybe our father, grandfather, coach, teacher or person of influence explained for lifelong principles which has helped guide us to our goals. This might be a great time to give a shout out to someone, thanking them for their positive influence and being a role model.
Journey Community Christian Church is currently sharing a fall series, VITAL CHURCH.
Most people who are joining us for this study and worship time have said, “It is very relevant and helpful to me.” If you haven’t checked us out lately, you might find this a positive topic for your life also. We have two options, always for you to choose from. Journey Sat@6pm and Sun@10:30am. Both these worship gatherings are identical services. You can join us in person or online, either one.
The series is developed around a very short letter to Titus in the Bible (3 chapters & 896 words). The older, wiser and experienced Apostle Paul directs the younger ministry friend, Titus. Probably, something like Wayne Gretzky getting daily coaching from his father. We really are better together. I am grateful for all the people in my life who helped guide my future.
This weekend we share notes from the Bible which can help older/younger adults grow healthy relationships with people. Growing healthy things for God is never easy, but it is not impossible either. Join us as we put our heads together and begin a season of growth in our personal life and the life of others.
If you’ve always wanted to learn HOW to lead others effectively and relate to everyone, whatever age group, this series from Titus will help. It is not too much information for anyone. You don’t have to memorize things or dress a certain way. Just be real and honest and be YOU. GOD will take care of the rest.
INVITE a friend to join you and then sit with them this weekend, if you can. That’s where things really get exciting. When we help God grow people, like someone helped us, that’s a score in heaven. In all the ways our world is still asking questions about the future, one thing is forever clear: CHURCH IS forever VITAL
