You Can Escape the Madness

If you’re not American, you might have heard of Groundhog Day from a movie. Prior to 1993 when the movie Groundhog Day came out, the “holiday”—and I put it in quotation marks because there’s really not much to the day—was mostly a way for Americans to collectively fuss about winter. Lore had it that if a particular groundhog in Pennsylvania saw his shadow that meant six more weeks of winter. Can I tell you how much a rodent and it’s shadow was (and is) talked about in America on February 2nd? Like a lot. Then came the movie sharing a name with the day.

The movie is described as “a charming and heartwarming comedy about an arrogant egotistical weatherman named Phil Connors (Bill Murray) who has a change of heart over the course of a day that lasts a decade. Every morning when he wakes up, it is the same day: February 2nd. No matter what he does, where he goes, and how he tries to change things, it makes no difference.”

Eventually Phil escapes the repetitive craziness of reliving the same day. But the idea of something that is so repetitive you feel stuck in a loop has become associated with Groundhog Day. And what in our current reality might fit that category the world over of “feeling stuck in an infinite loop”?


Enter our own guide out of the madness: leadership specialist Bernie Anderson of Growability. He’s offering a free webinar for Great Commission workers who feel that their inbox is Out.Of.Control.

In it, you’ll learn strategies and be given tools to get on top of your email inbox and gain a little more peace of mind in 2023! Join us February 7th, at 7:00 a.m. MT/9:00 a.m. ET/1:00 p.m. London. 

Because we value soul tending and skill building, the webinar will equip you on the skill side. After the webinar we are launching a glorious 12 week series on building a rule of life to address the soul side. Non-ironically, we’ll kick it off with looking at a typical 24 hour day in your life!

You might roll your eyes at this webinar topic or feel impatient with a 12 week series that tends to your soul by inviting you to weekly reflect with God on an area of your life. But that’s why you need a space like Global Trellis. You need both tools for current technology and resources that equip you for eternity.
