“Life is more than just reaching our goals.” – Max De Pree
If you read my last post, you heard me talking about Type A, over achiever types… I’m one of them. I have worked to the point of near physical and mental collapse on more than one occasion. It’s really hard for me to grasp the truth that God loves me for who He made me to be, not who I made me to be. Part of my problem is that I’m so focused on the future (partially because of what I do) that I never take the time to enjoy the now.
So, tonight I took a few minutes to put my feet up and relax…and to be thankful – not for tomorrow, but for now.

Hmmm - well, let's see...
I'm a Christian, a husband, a dad, a son, a pastor, a consultant, a musician, a writer, and bits and pieces of a bunch of other things. My work life has followed three main phases - business to teaching to church. I was the Weekend Services Pastor for nine years at Northview Church, an awesome church in the Indianapolis suburbs. I used to work for Willow Creek, another awesome church in the Chicago area. Plus I've written for various magazines and websites, and other freelancy sorts of things... My life mission is to help the church be as excellent as it can be.
Oh yeah - the name's Greg. Greg Wallace. But not the race car driver or the major league pitcher or the British celebrity chef. Just the creative worship guy. Hi.
It's my hope that these ideas, musings, rants, raves, etc... will inspire you. They're just my opinions - but again, I hope that they'll help to inspire you. Because the church really, really needs inspired creative types. If you're a creative type (and most people are, deep-down), ask God for help. Then take any ideas that are useful to you - borrow them, nab them, use them, adapt them - and make them into something greater...
