A couple of days ago I worked a shift at Starbucks for the first time in a month. It was cool to hang out and see some friends again. One of the regular customers that I had developed a rapport with came in, so we chatted. This guy used to talk to me about a business leadership network he was a part of – they do classes and mixers and generally try to make people better leaders. He always tried to get me involved, telling me about the other pastors, priests, and rabbis that were there. I wasn’t closed to the idea – I just never pursued it. Well, when he saw me the other day, he said something like this – “Hey Steve, great to see you! I was just thinking about you the other day. I’ve been reading this OUTSTANDING business book and wondered if you had read it. It’s by a guy named Rick Warren, and it’s called The Purpose Driven Church.” I had to tell the truth – yes, I said, I’ve read it. He proceeded to rave about the wonderful business principles in the book.

I seriously doubt that Rick Warren reads this blog . . . but just in case . . . Congratulations Mr. Warren, you’re a wonderful CEO. You’ve helped people all over the world start and manage great businesses. Maybe in the process a few people have found Jesus, too. I hope. I mean, I really hope.
