The Late Dr. Gardner C. Taylor often pinned to clergy that pain and preaching how oddly they may go together. For those of us who are carriers of the Word of God on a "regular basis understand that pain has a way of finding them. Pain is sometimes the catalyst of our call and its problematic and it liberating.
What King and many young preachers besides would have learned from Taylor was the genius for channeling evangelical doctrine and the great stories of the Bible into socially progressive and prophetic utterance.-in Taylor et al., Our Sufficiency Is of God: Essays on Preaching in Honor of Gardner C. Taylor, xvii.
This is my mantra for Leadership development.
My blog is designed for practical leaders for informing, providing resources, connecting with the community, and provide data that is relevant to the church and the community-at-large. 2020 is a year for focus, relevancy, and to strategize growth for your church to operate as a business.
A Natural Born Leader that Seeking Freedom
It's Your Time to Soar
Do you feel that you were born to lead, but you don't know how to get there? Emerging Leaders 2020 was birthed out my desire to see individuals maximize their leadership abilities. We all have a leader inside of us, but many times we feel like a "caged bird." Dr. Maya Angelou pinned in one of her famous poetry works called the "Caged Bird." The proverbial stance that I love in this poem is, "The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom." The untapped leader feels caged, sometimes feels that no one else understands why I need freedom. But, "The free bird thinks of another breeze and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees and the fat worms waiting on a dawn bright lawn and he names the sky his own." An Emerging Leader needs room to fly and spread their wings. Oh Freedom, Oh Freedom, Oh Freedom over me And before I'd be a slave I'd be buried in my grave (Oh Freedom Song by Golden Gospel Singers).
Don't limit your ability to lead based on your limitations. The Lord gave me a phrase really for our mental health agency that I believe works for anyone aspiring to lead, "I'm not limited, I'm Limitless." You set your set limits, you determine how far you want to go, you determine if you want to be a world-changer or world innovator. We desire to wake up the Emerging Leader on the inside of you.
