Servant Leadership

“Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave — just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Matt 20:26-28). A rider on horseback, many years ago, came upon a squad of soldiers who were trying to move a heavy piece of timber. A corporal stood by, giving lordly orders {Read More}

Leaving with Integrity

  All changes are more or less tinged with melancholy, for what we are leaving behind is part of ourselves. –Amelia Barr The year was 1996.  We were in transition from the state of California to the state of Texas because of a job that had ended.  I’ll never forget crossing the state line between California into Arizona and looking in the rear-view mirror.  Tears ran down my face as I saw the last California palm tree I would see {Read More}

Nurturing the Leader within Your Child

For years the parenting question I have often pondered is what was the parenting style of the Hebrew children’s parents? As you will recall from the Book of Daniel:  Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah (Belteshazzar, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego) were taken away at a young age but exhibited a faith in God that many adults struggle with even today. How can I as a parent raise children who will not bow their knee to any of the world’s distractions? Dr. Tim Elmore’s {Read More}

You are a Change Agent

”And be not conformed to this world…be transformed…prove what is good…” [Romans 12:2] Did you ever stop to think that the transforming power of God can only be released through change? Life is measured by the moment by moment decisions we make to move away from the shoreline of yesterday. The following quote by a friend seems to capture with startling clarity the culture we live in and the difficulties we have in becoming the change agents of today’s culture. {Read More}

Maybe this will help. In their excellent book on leadership, Hope is Not a Method, General G. Sullivan and Michael Harper tell a remarkable story about Lt. H. {Read More}
