16,000 shares

Another great post from Mark Batterson.

Here he tells the story of a guy that gave up a six-figure salary at Microsoft and 16,000 stock options worth millions of dollars, all because God was calling him to plant a church.

Wonderfully crazy, isn’t it?

Mark goes on to think about the generational and eternal value of each person impacted by Lee’s decision and how that far outweighs the value of stock options.

Very cool. And helpful as we celebrate our 2nd birthday at VCW. Each person we invite to the party this Sunday will be being invited to The Party forever.

If you’re in the neighborhood, come and join us for cake and PuraVida after our 10 a.m. service.

    That is cool. I had no idea bio-fuel was such a feasible thing here already. I want to spread the word… why are not more people doing this? Why is this not more known? Or is it just my maternal cocoon I live in, so I am the slow one? 🙂

    Hi Spring! Did you mean this comment for Selling Indulgences post?

    As for ease, I had no idea it was that easy either. And Frontier Energy said it is the same price as regular oil.

    I have heard that use of bioheat may void a furnace warranty. You’ll probably want to look into that. 😉
