Leadership lessons

Our church council is using the book The Most Loving Place in Town for devotions at our monthly meetings. Last night we covered chapters 3 & 4. At the end of chapter 4 were these review points, which I thought were worth remembering:
  • A few minutes of brutal honesty are worth years of self-deception.
  • God's love for me is bigger than any mistake or leadership miscue I can ever make.
  • Having safe-harbor accountability relationships is a vital antidote to the pressures and isolation of leadership.
  • Get out and about. Learn as you listen. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you fall in love with God's people again.
