#ThoughtsFromTerry Dispatch w.33.2018
I am honored and excited about the opportunity to speak at the Rock Experience Conference #RX2018 on Monday in Louisville, Kentucky. I have known Jon Edmiston, the Rock founder since early 2000’s when he was on staff at Christ Church of the Valley. I personally love what the Rock is doing to serve the local church, and happy to bring a talk that I hope encourages and equips the attendees. My talk is titled Leading In A Digerati Age, and offers some practical learning lessons I have picked up over that last 25 years of serving and leading in full-time ministry.
If you’re attending the conference hit reply and let me know. I would love to connect if possible.
I am a huge Dave Grohl fan. If you don’t know who Dave is, do you remember Nirvana? If you know Foo Fighters, then you know Dave. If you don’t...I will do my best to forgive you. Dave is a pure musical genius and a legend, and at 49 he is still growing, developing and pushing himself to new levels. I think that is something that just draws me to admire him so much musically.
Last week Dave released a new 23-minute single called Play. To simply call it a single is way too limiting! You can watch this interview with Jimmy Kimmel to learn more.

Quotes I loved
I can't read music! Had to memorize it all. (7 instruments, 23 min.)
I don’t play the piano.
Doing something I have never done before...I was totally unsure I could pull it off.
Many times I was in the 20th min., and stopped and started over because I knew I could do it better.
Here is the full documentary and single. For music lovers, it will blow your mind! Dave Grohl - Play documentary (Warning language)
