A friend of mine from Redeemer went and bought the latest book of Guinness World Records recently, and unfortunately I knew it was already out-of-date, thanks to Ben Stiller's selfie stick.
But a world record attempt did catch my eye - the record for the most people to participate in a series of pub quizzes.
But it got me thinking.
People love it when they see something done faster, higher, longer, stronger or better than ever before.
I'm the same; I can't help but admire the highest achievers...and compare myself to them.
I find myself watching The Apprentice and thinking I could do better.
Or watching Masterchef and thinking there's no way I'd get any further than figuring out how to switch the oven on (possibly).
So let me give you a way to be a world record holder.
There are more Sam Isaacsons in the world than you might expect, but there's only one of me.
No-one can be me in the way I can.
I hold the world record for being me, better than anyone else ever has or ever will.
And the same is true for you.
I have an offer for you, and a favour to ask.
And they're both the same thing:
Please come and make a world record attempt with Redeemer this Sunday morning.
Bring yourself, your unique personality and gifts, and let us get to know you, a record breaker.
