Circle of Trust:

  • The Plague shared from the QSource Blog from 4/3
    • UNDERSTANDING PEOPLE
      • The first quality of a relational leader is the ability to understand how people feel and think. As you work with others, recognize that all people, whether leaders or followers, have some things in common:
        • They like to feel special, so sincerely compliment them.
        • They want a better tomorrow, so show them hope.
        • They desire direction, so navigate for them.
        • They are selfish, so speak to their needs first.
        • They get low emotionally, so encourage them.
        • They want success, so help them win.
      • Recognizing these truths, a leader must still be able to treat people as individuals. The ability to look at each person, understand him, and connect with him is a major factor in relational success. That means treating people differently, not all the same as one another.
      • Philippians 4:13 – “I can do all things through him who strengthens me”. This popular verse holds different meaning now when applied to self-awareness and the ability to understand other people.
  • TAPS
    • Reminder of First Friday lunch this Friday, 4/5
    • Khaki’s reported out about his trip to New Orleans and visiting their F3 group
    • Prayers for health and protection of our PAX and their families
