Why this blog
“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light” 1 Peter 2:9, American King James
Thanks for visiting my blog. Why such a blog as this? Three reasons:
1. I teach leadership to NGO and ministry leaders, and I see many wonderful examples of “peculiar leadership”… that which is set apart from how the world operates and I wanted a place to think out loud about what I see and hear in my students and NGO colleagues on a daily basis.
2. I run a lot. And while on my daily runs, I get very funny perspectives that come to mind that I needed a place to flesh out further. Here is that space to amuse myself.
3. Too often we hold up secular business or other transactional forms of leadership as “best practices”…. in the church, in ministry. I would like a place to challenge some of that thinking and here is my place.
The beauty of a blog is that it is optional reading. Sometimes you will love what I’m writing, sometimes you won’t. Click the little “x” button on your screen and “poof”, you don’t have to read it any longer 🙂
At the end of the day, I hope this is a space that makes you think or chuckle and makes you want to be a “peculiar leader” as scripture calls us to it.
Together we serve,
