In part 1 of this series, we discussed why Jesus is the most important “ball” for leaders to keep our eyes on. Let’s talk about how to do that day by day. As we do, we’ll move toward the relational oneness Jesus invites us into in John 17 (see Malcolm Webber’s 3-minute teaching). A Tale […]

How to Discern God's Still Small Voice

Quiet. Stillness. Listening. These aren’t words typically associated with leadership. For most of us words like busyness, charging ahead, and verbal communication characterize our days. While there’s a place for full schedules and important dialogue, there’s also a place for slowing down and listening to God’s perspective. It’s a place where silence becomes golden as […]
