Here are the top 5 Christian leadership blog posts on leadership or productivity that I’ve read this past fortnight:
“Some questions need to be answered by you, the pastor. And the problem is, that it’s not just the subject – it’s the speed and the angle. Some questions are like a friendly, gentle lob, which you can respond to with ease, but some come tearing at you through the air, with disguised spin and a nasty way of bouncing off the grass. If you’re a tennis fan, think of facing Sampras’ serve. Cricket, think of facing Warne or McGrath. Americans, I have no idea but Im sure you have a seriously nasty baseball pitcher (is that the word?) you can supply.”
Emotional maturity is so important for spiritual leaders. This guide helps your emotional self-awareness.
“Unfortunately, some churches practice an unhealthy form of church government which does more harm than good. In these cases, acrimonious business meetings are usually a clear sign of church that has an unhealthy inward focus and is in decline, and such hostile meetings are counterproductive to fulfilling the Great Commission. Thom Rainer comments on this problem: “Church business meetings become arguments over preferences and desires.” While business meetings can be a great cause for anxiety, they need not be.”
Ten Things From Birks And Kitching In The Officer Magazine, 1960 ‘For Christ’ And How by Major Stephen Court
“There must be no platform, no street corner, no hostel or home, no institutional activity, no place where any officer is engaged as an instrument for God’s purposes where these two words – FOR CHRIST – do not face us and hold us. I make no apology for stressing this.”
“Now the first thing we have to do in a crisis is acknowledge it. Now that this has been done, the pressure is on. I mean, once you acknowledge that the state of The Army is ‘catastrophe’, ‘cataclysm’, ‘emergency’, ‘disaster’, ‘predicament’, ‘plight’, ‘mess’, ‘dire straits’, ‘pickle’, etc., you have GOT to do something about it.”
In this Salvation Army sermon on empowering leaders, we see that a leadership model that leads to burnout is unhealthy and will not grow God’s Kingdom.
