Success To Significance

I am a member of a local church in Kansas City, MO. I have been attempting to organize the men of our congregation to meet regularly for an early morning devotional. I love getting my days started with prayer and reflection upon God’s plan for my life.
Several men from the local church will begin meeting for study and discussion of the to topic “Success To Significance” based upon the book of the same name written by Lloyd Reeb. The series will begin April 24th and run through July 10th. This study will deal with topics of particular interest to those in their “halftime years” and beyond.
The location of these meeting is 217 South Washington, Raymore, MO. The time is 7:00-8:30 AM. The dates and the titles of the lessons in this series include:
April 24th – Session #1-Redefining Success
May 15th – Session #2-Overcoming Obstacles
May 29th – Session #3-Preparing for the Journey
June 12th – Session #4-Finding Your Direction
June 26th – Session #5-Creating Margin
July 10th – Session #6-Finding Your Place to Serve
If you live in the Raymore area and are interested in joining us for this study, please RSVP to me via e-mail (run2randy@yahoo.com) by Tuesday, April 21st, and I will send you the study/discussion material for the first session.
We look forward to sharing ideas with you as we meet to pray and to reflect upon God’s plan for our lives. May God bless you today and each day as you strive to live a life of significance for him!
As Mr. Reeb says in the introduction of this material, “Success to Significance will challenge you to engage your world with passion and purpose. You will learn how your experiences and skills can benefi t your local church, your community, and your world. Through this study you will discover a process that can help you implement your own personal talents and resources to help others and make a signifi cant difference in the world today. This book is written for you and other people at midlife who want their life to count in signifi cant ways.”
“Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You something to drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or without clothes and clothe You? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and visit You?’ And the King will answer them, ‘I assure you: Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me” (Matt. 25:37-40).
