New Year, New Commitment

“The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.” Vince Lombardi

Here’s a true/false quiz:

Denise’s family owns a piece of the Green Bay Packers True or False

Bonus question:

Vince Lombardi was the coach of the Packers in the late 50’s and early 60’s True or False

You might wonder why I’m writing all these football references. January is playoff season for the NFL and Lombardi was a successful leader. When he became coach, he told his team that he “had never been on a losing team and did not intend to start now.” He went on to lead the team to improve and in the next eight years, they won five conference titles and two Super Bowl titles. The Super Bowl trophy is named after Vince Lombardi. (The Super Bowl is Sunday, February 13, 2022). https://www.profootballhof.com/players/vince-lombardi 

What does this football reference have to do with HMA? I want us to be champions for health ministry. We have a big schedule coming up and we need all of us to play our positions. We have Scope and Standards to revise, leaders to nominate, and a conference to plan. Each of us has been training for our role in faith and health and now it’s time to jump into the game for team HMA. 

What position will you play? Reach out to Directors and tell them to “put me in coach!”

PS- both answers are TRUE
