Friday Burn

::: Why I Left World Vision for Finance
This week's must read on calling, vocation and theology of place.

::: Leaders and the Questions They Ask
My favorites:
4. How do you encourage creative thinking within your organization?
10. How do you help a new employee understand the culture of your organization?
19. What are you doing to ensure you continue to grow and develop as a leader?

::: The reality for practically all denominations is that the time has come when the M.Div model of leadership is no longer tenable
If the North American church is to become a missionary movement in our culture, it will need a leadership that is not primarily shaped by executive, administrative and expert roles. These leaders will need to become more like Abbot and Abbesses; men and women whose vocation is cultivating local movements of God's people.

::: Lessons on Leading
So good.
1) Great leadership is measured not by the number of people a leader manages, but by the number of people that leader inspires.
5) The more you give, the more you give.
Leaders recognize that we should feel 60% mastery and 40% stretch in our jobs at any given time
