Here are the top 5 Christian leadership blog posts on leadership or productivity that I’ve read this past fortnight:
“I’m a huge fan of music for performance. Some of the most enjoyable, memorable evenings I’ve ever spent have been at concerts listening to musicians entertain us, inspire us, and make us gasp in awe at their artistry.
But worship music is something else, entirely. Whether the musical style is classical, pop, southern gospel, adult contemporary, choral, or spiced with a lot of salsa or soul, there should be some clear lines drawn between worship-based music and performance-based music.”
“Criticism is almost inevitable if you’re doing God’s work in a rotten world. No matter how hard you work to serve God and others well, somebody’s going to complain. I know, because I’ve been the recipient of that criticism. My general approach to criticism, though, is to first give the complainer the benefit of the doubt—and then deal with the critique. Here’s why I start with the benefit of the doubt.”
“Pick whatever cultural values you want, but fundamentally, your culture will either be healthy or slide into unhealthy or toxic. You either decide to create an organisation in which healthy people thrive, or you experience the inevitable slide into malaise, unhealthiness or toxicity. That’s just how human nature works. Your organization should always have room for unhealthy people on the road to recovery. Toxic people who resist all efforts to help are a whole other thing. And as Henry Cloud argues, you really don’t need to keep them around, unless you want them to destroy everything. So what do you do about all this?”
“More and more churches seem to be moving to a sermon-based curriculum for their small groups. That is, they review and study the same text the pastor preached on the previous Sunday. On the other hand, I’ve met church leaders who oppose this approach. Here’s a summary of the arguments I’m hearing.”
“What if we viewed emotional purity in the same light that we viewed sexual purity? Garbage in, garbage out. Doesn’t that apply to our emotions as well? And isn’t something like anger and anxiety just as much of an issue as sexual indiscretion? (That’s not to minimize either but to maximize the importance of holistic holiness).”
