Transcript: “That’s Life” by James Brown “That’s Life” is relatable to “no gain without pain” because in the song it talks about life being hard at times. In one part of the song the lyrics state, “That's life, that's what the people say/ You're ridin' high in April, shot down in May/ But I know, I'm gonna change that tune/ When I'm back on, top in June” and in these lines the artist is saying that the world is tough and when you are on top of life it will come and nock you down but you keep moving forward. In another line the lyrics state, “I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king/ And up, down, over and out but I know one thing/ Every time I feel that I'm gonna fall flat on my face/ I just pick myself up and get back in the race”. In these lyrics the artist is saying that he has been in every state of life but every time he falls he gets back up and he is motivating others to do the same. The song “That’s Life” reflects the saying “no gain without pains” because it talks about getting knocked down in life but getting up and keep moving forward to be better. First Harvest- Thanatopsis “Circle of Life” by Elton John The song “Circle of Life” relates to Thanatopsis because both works discuss nature as a cycle and when something dies something else is created and follows the same path as the one before, and that path is death. A lyric in "Circle of Life" the song states, “From the day we arrive on the planet/And blinking, step into the sun/ There's more to see than can ever be seen/More to do than can ever be done". In these lyrics the artist is talking about how there is not enough time in any living thing’s life to enjoy the world and that death will take them. Another lyric from “Circle of Life” is, “There's far too much to take in here/ More to find than can ever be found/ But the Sun rolling high through the sapphire sky/ Keeps great and small on the endless round”. In these lyrics the artist is saying that no matter how great or strong someone is they still are going to have the same fate as someone weaker, and that fate is death. Like Thanatopsis the song “Circle of Life” involves a massage that death will take everyone as it has taken those before. The American Tradition-Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God “Cold, Cold Ground” by Tom Waits “Cold, Cold Ground” relates to “How to Build a Fire” because the song talks about being sleeping on a cold ground during winter. In the song a line says, “Now don't be a cry baby when there's wood in the shed/There's a bird in the chimney and a stone in my bed/When the road's washed out, we pass the bottle around/And wait in the arms of the cold, cold ground”. The artist is saying through these lyrics that he is of no concern as long as he has something to drink. In another line the lyrics state, “Give me a Winchester rifle and a whole box of shells/Blow the roof off the goat barn, let it roll down the hill/The piano is firewood, Times Square is a dream/I find we'll lay down together in the cold, cold ground”. In these lyrics the artist is saying that he can dream but his truth is that he will die and be placed in the cold ground. Like “How to Build a Fire” the song “Cold, Cold Ground” is saying that men are trying to prove it’s self but no matter what they will die. “Happy Birthday” by Stevie Wonder “Happy Birthday” is a good example of the characteristic focus on individual because the artist focuses his song on one man’s birthday. In the song some lyrics state, “You know it doesn't make much sense/ There ought to be a law against/ Anyone who takes offense/ At a day in your celebration”. In these lyrics the artist is saying that no one should disagree with the idea of making a day to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. because he was such a great man. Another lyric from the song is, “I just never understood/ How a man who died for good/ Could not have a day that would/ Be set aside for his recognition”. These lyrics reflect the idea of focusing on an individual because it talks about how good King was and that he died for a good cause in which he should be celebrated for doing so. Like the characteristic focus on individual the song “Happy Birthday” focuses on one man’s birthday and wants it be celebrated by all. "To Build a Fire" Benjamin Franklin- No gain without pains "Bonus" Reason and Revolution- Speech in the Virginia Convention “Self Destruction” by Stop the Violence Movement “Self Destruction” is relatable to The Crucible because the song talks about a group of people killing and destroying each other ruining peace among them just like in The Crucible. In the song the lyric states, “Well, today's topic, self destruction/ It really ain't the rap audience that's buggin/ It's one or two suckas, ignorant brothers/ Trying to rob and steal from one another/ You get caught in the mid/ So to crush the stereotype here's what we did/We got ourselves together so that you could unite and fight for what's right/ Not negative 'cause the way we live is

Transcript: Matthew 3:2 - John the Baptist Matthew 4:17 - Jesus Acts 2:38 - Peter It's about changing our minds... thinking differently about how we are living based on what God is saying. We are going to look at Scripture--and how God asks us to live, and compare it to some faulty assumptions we have about serving. What are some faulty ways we think about serving in the church? Big WE -- little they "Thank you" for "helping us" Use 'em and lose 'em Lawnmower mentality We serve Jesus together God-driven vision 5-step process Effectiveness is measured in 2 Kingdom goals Biblical Principles BUGGSPRAYER Leadership experiences burnout--they're doing all the work! Inflated sense of self-importance Lots of negative feedback--not a lot of positive feedback Miss out on the joy of seeing Jesus work in the lives of others. There is no benefit to the ministry Restoring a biblical model of volunteer ministry and experiencing organization-wide powerful ministry effectiveness. How do people perceive volunteers? Why are you here? How do people perceive volunteers? HIGH IMPACT PRINCIPLES $1.25 Friday, July 1, 2016 Feel Good Approach What is High Impact? Let's Build something together! So how about prayer? It's easier for me to just do it myself You can do it/have it all The customer is king. Give the customer what they want I'm just a volunteer--this isn't my job! I don't want any responsibility, but if you need something done, I can help. Results are the best indicator of success. If I want it done right, it's better if I do it myself. "In light of God's mercy" Feel Good Another faulty way of ministry Vol XCIII, No. 311 Only the "Pros" do the ministry Team Members observe Reinforces passive Christianity helper approach No benefit to Volunteers Another faulty way of doing ministry The Three Approaches to Ministry "We can't push too hard or they'll leave!" "It would be better to have someone on the team doing something than no one doing anything." Volunteer benefit is high because they are let loose--but is that the best? No direction or purposeful growth! Dilutes the vision of the ministry little we--BIG THEY Volunteers are the first customer! Volunteers "feel good" Vision of OCC is diluted There aren't any volunteers! No one wants to serve. Everyone wants the benefits with none of the responsibility. They don't experience the joy of being used by God and experiencing the power and faithfulness of Jesus! A lot of benefit to the ministry Every Ministry has an approach to how people serve. Why is it important to look at the different models? It's about "metanoeo"--we have to be willing to look at the ways we do ministry in light of what Scripture says. Are we living out our calling to the fullest potential? If now--we want to be aware, and we want to be able to change our minds! The Three Approaches to Ministry One faulty way to do ministry As leaders, naturally our minds, and the minds of those we are leading will go to these places. It's our job to constantly bring them back to God's plan! High Impact Model Biblical- Every principle is derived from Scripture Urgent- Time is short and we have a lot to accomplish for the Kingdom Gospel- It's all about Jesus and the power of the Gospel to change lives Grace- It's not about performance; properly motivated volunteers are motivated by God's grace Simple- Must be simple to be understood Spirit- Power of the Holy Spirit must be in everything we do Prayer Some Faulty ways of thinking: Discovering the Heart of High Impact The High Impact Model Leaders believe that we have to keep the volunteers "happy" "Metanoeo" Spiritual Warfare 1. A volunteer is a child of God 2. Financial versus HUMAN stewardship 3. Transformed Value 4. Sacred Keys 5. Select fewer more productive volunteers 6. Serving is a privilege 7. Volunteers are capable partners 8. Multiplication 9. Purposeful growth Spectator Approach The Helper Approach Leaders recognize the need for volunteers--but the volunteer becomes a "means to an end" Workers "help" us out--and leaders become "program managers" Work towards "out there" goals; no development of volunteers and "in-here" goals Volunteers serve out of obligation, with no joy in the privilege of serving Restoring High Impact begins with the heart Biblical Every principle is derived from the Word of God Volunteer = servant latreuo -priestly service, offerings Matthew 10:4, Rom 12:1, Rom 9:4, diakonos -servant, minister, office of deacon, I Tim 3: 10-13) Doulos – bond servant Exodus 21:5 – 6, Phil 2:7 Nadab – free will offering, 1 Chron. 29:9 Effectiveness: reaching the out-there, in-here goals High Impact The Spectator Approach Building can be frustrating… God is always building temples Temporary tabernacle by Moses (Exodus 25-40) Solomon’s temple (1Kings 5-8; 1 Chr 21-22, 28-29) Zerubbabel rebuilding the temple (Ezra 3-6) Living Stones (1 Peter 2:4-9) God invites us to experience His presence (in-here goals) and His power (out-there goals).
