Here's the finial snippet of my article 7 Ways to be Remarkable from the January 2008 issue of Pentecostal Messenger:
7. Involve OthersNote: If you don't already receive Pentecostal Messenger and you'd like to, the Pentecostal Church of God is offering free subscriptions for the remaining 2008 issues. For details, go to www.pcg.org.
During late spring and early summer, I see crowds gathered around the little league ball fields in my home town. The crowds do not gather because of the athletic ability of the players. They gather because they know someone involved in the game, and that someone wants their family to see them play. Something remarkable occurs, because parents tell others, "you should have seen...!"
I think involved people remark more often than the non-involved. Choir members invite their friends to hear them sing. Musicians invite other musicians. Pastors bring more people to district events if they're involved in the event. Involvement breeds excitement and ownership, causing people to make remarks. And if they're remarking, then it is obviously remarkable -- at least to them.

Here's snippet #6 of my article 7 Ways to be Remarkable from the January 2008 issue of Pentecostal Messenger:
6. Be the Best, ReallyNote: If you don't already receive Pentecostal Messenger and you'd like to, the Pentecostal Church of God is offering free subscriptions for the remaining 2008 issues. For details, go to www.pcg.org.
The best of anything is remarkable. People talk about the best - whether it be the best bargains, restaurants, or sports teams. People also talk about excellence in churches, but congregations are silent if a church is average.
To be remarkable, find something you could be the best at, and then do it. Have the best preschool program in town, the best worship services in the city, or the best Vacation Bible School. You could love the best, teach the best, or work better than anyone to improve your city. The key is to find an area where you could be remarkable, and then work on that area.
Note that you cannot simply say you're the best, but you must be so. As Margaret Thatcher once said, "If you have to tell someone you are, you aren't."
