Just back from Los Angeles at an authors convention…”Author 101 University” sponsored by the publicist of my books Mr. Rick Frishman. www.rickfrishman.com He is the best in the business and a fantastic human being. If any of you are thinking of writing a book, you would be well schooled, to start with Rick. Caught a couple a pictures of “The Boys” stars off of Sunset Strip in the heart of Hollywood. I thought I would share them with you. The kings of cool!
To the point of the title of this blog. I was at the 11:AM service of Lynnhaven Presbyterian Church this past Sunday, planted on the third row, listening to my Padre, the Rev. Scottie Griffin, shuck the corn. Man, he can bring it! He was talking about service, not just to the church but service to our fellow man. All of a sudden he popped out these words, “We never did it that way before.” “If anyone wants to know the last words of any organization, business, church or civic league, I promise those are the last words that were spoken before they shut the doors.”
It made a meaningful impact on me. Volunteering is the key to happiness. When someone new comes in and wants to serve, we want to make sure we welcome their energy, commitment and new ideas. That is the life blood of keeping the wheels turning. Lets all take these words to heart and make sure they are never part of our speech. “Giving back means getting back…many times over.”
Remember…”Be a Bully to Bullying.” Gus
