Leading, the Following Way.

Follow Me

Jesus did not focus on leadership; certainly not the way many Christian pastors and teachers do today.  In fact, I cannot find one place in all of his (red-letter) words where he calls any man specifically to “lead” or to “leadership.” Don’t get me wrong.  Certainly Jesus was and is a leader and led not only a band of twelve men but a movement that would fascinate and dominate the interests of countless millions.  Still, as I pour over his words, although I personally love the subject of leadership I am hard-pressed to find any inkling of the fascination we have today with the subject.But, … [Read more...]

Working on Your Joy in 2012 – Some Quotes!
