Emphatic listening vs. sympathy

Posted on August 4, 2008 at 7:00pm 3 Comments

I'm listening to the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, and one of the habits is to seek first to understand, then to be understood. And it talks about empathic listening--not judging, not agreeing(sympathy) but feeling what they feel(empathy). And that this is powerful.

According to Covey, the first need that follows physical survival is psychological survival: You matter. Conveying to a person that they have value.

And what's more, Stephen Covey says, you can… Continue

Our relationship with the Lord

Posted on August 4, 2008 at 2:30pm 2 Comments

From my Oswald Chambers devo:

We must never allow anything to injure our

relationship with God; if it does get injured we must take time and

get it put right. The main thing about Christianity is not the work

we do, but the relationship we maintain and the atmosphere produced

by that relationship. That is all God asks us to look after, and it

is the one thing that is being continually assailed

Hey... Holland Davis here. I'd like to tell you about It's a website that is song focused...

The original premise was to make a site where worship leaders could listen to a song, download a chord chart and teach it in their church. I had a song - I Will Stand - jump 500 points on CCLI just through this site alone.

We've since expanded it to featured CD's, Artists, Songs...

We've also added the ability to sell mp3's, rhythm charts, orchestrations, backing trax, whatever you can think of...

You can upload any video or audio format and it will play it...

We've also made it user friendly for non-musical folks by adding a playlist feature where you can make a playlist of your favorite songs and play it like a radio station. You can also email the playlist to other people. I use it for my worship team to send out the setlist and charts for songs.

Future items are a pay per view feature for educational videos, a more expanded social networking feature, blogging, etc. Right now it's really song focused.

If you write and record worship songs... I'd love it if you would upload your songs to the site.

I'd love your thoughts on the site as well...

Hey find this page for: Elman Authement and let me know what you think!!! I love the songs and I think it would be good for us to slow down and harmonize with a few new songs....

BTW I started a Calvary Chapel affiliates group on this site. Hasn't gotten much activity but over time it would be fun to see who joins. Decided to keep it CC instead of Horizon so it would catch a broader group. Anyway, would love if you would join :)
