End of Week links and thoughts

- Tim Schraeder has all the notes from Leadership Summit and the sessions up on his blog. - Bill Hybels has a brand new book out called The Power of a Whisper. I can't wait to read it.

- We had a great programming retreat for Catalyst Atlanta earlier this week. Got some fun ideas on the board for October. Don't miss out.

- I am DIGGIN the new EP from Satellite. Get it on itunes. Great music. Great guys from LA.

- Really enjoyed hanging with Darren Whitehead, Jon Tyson, Josh Cox, Reece Whitehead, Aaron Niequist, Shauna Niequist, Jake Smith, Jon Peacock, Paul JVR, and others this week.

- Not sure I agree with the College Football preseason rankings that just came out. Oklahoma is at #8. I would have to put them in the top 5, especially over Texas and Boise State.

- Have you registered for The Nines? It's free on September 9, and will include all kinds of great leaders and communicators talking about what have been the game changers in their lives, ministry and leadership. Register now. Catalyst is a sponsor and partner in the event.

- This is so cool! Ryan Meeks along with Eastlake Community Church in Seattle, WA have raised around $150,000 for charity: water in the past couple of weeks. All through what started as a campaign around Ryan's birthday and has now turned into a church wide money raising initiative. Read more here.
