I recently saw a tweet about conducting funerals for people you do not know, along with a link to an article offering advice. My interest was piqued, but I refrained from reading the article so that I could share my own suggestions without my ideas being influenced by the writer.

Have you ever tried to see the back of your head without using a mirror? Doesn’t make sense to try, does it? Since we can’t see it, we don’t pay much attention to it or even know much about what’s going on back there.

Running headlong into a task or a job situation without considering how it fits you and whether it will value your uniqueness can be disastrous.   When you try to force the proverbial square peg into the round hole you may damage the peg, the hole, or both. It is important to assess your personal strengths, your interests, your social style, and the intensity of your courage as a foundation for achieving more. Know who you are before deciding w»

Prior to this internship, I have never worked alongside church staff before having always worked with para-church ministries. With an emphasis of working with the collegiate and missions ministries at Calvary, I have had the»
