To Be Remarkable, Involve Others

Here's the finial snippet of my article 7 Ways to be Remarkable from the January 2008 issue of Pentecostal Messenger:

7. Involve Others

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.

Note: 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
