In the old days (I can’t believe I’m using that phrase) “fall” started on Labor Day and school started right after. Not any more. Schools start in July and August, depending on the school district. And with school starting already, it feels like fall, except we still have triple-digit heat and there are still no football games! My point? It’s August already, and we are starting things off for our version of Fall Kickoff. So get ready, as “fall” is here.
Global Leadership Summit
It’s not too late to sign up for our 10th annual Global Leadership Summit event. Really, you don’t want to miss this. I think this is my 13th year attending the GLS and I’ve learned so much and have been able to apply and use so many practical insights. For me, it has been life-changing, and in one season of my life, it was life-saving. The Summit is Thursday and Friday, August 9 & 10. Find out more and SIGN UP HERE.

Love and Respect Marriage Event
We wanted to follow up our current series Mixtape – the Soundtrack for Marriage with an evening with Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, who will share his practical insights on the basics needed for a great marriage – love and respect! This is based on what the Bible teaches in Ephesians 5:33. Love and respect, what we are focusing on in our current series, are the keys to developing oneness. Don’t miss this. Grow your marriage! Find out more and REGISTER HERE.
Finally, thank you all for your very kind responses to our 20th anniversary here at Pantano. Jolene and I are very grateful for the notes (which we are still reading) and for the gift of a vacation. Wow! I have loved being a part of Pantano for these 20 years and I’ve loved sharing life with you all. THANK YOU!
