The bishop answered, “It …

crossscribble1web250px

Messy Spiritual Leadership, cont.
Let’s talk about the messy leadership that cultivates environments where people far from God can grow up to become His church. How do we lead like that?
I believe first we have to cultivate the soil with grace-giving acceptance. Grace is the environment where people grow best – where people begin to experience …

Messy Spiritual Leadership Part 4 – John Burke

Messy Spiritual Leadership, cont.
What did Jesus’ ministry look like? Messy! Isn’t that what the religious leaders of his day had a hard time with – how messy it was?

He was hanging out with ethically corrupt tax collectors and former prostitutes and the partying sinners of his day – messy people, like the Samaritan woman. She …

Messy Spiritual Leadership, cont.
Are you willing to get your hands dirty?
Before you answer that, let me tell you about a few leaders in our church. These people are fully following Christ and now they’re leading others spiritually but when they first came to our church it was downright messy:

• Brian was an atheist. He got …

Messy Spiritual Leadership Part 2 – John Burke

Messy Spiritual Leadership
I want to talk about messy spiritual leadership. I want to talk about the messy leadership required for the church to grow up out of the emerging cultural realities around us.

The Apostle Paul writes to a very messy church in 1 Corinthians 3 and he says this, ‘I planted the seed, Apollos watered …

Messy Spiritual Leadership Part 1 – John Burke

Cultivating the Soil
Every year I plant flowers around this big tree right in the middle of our front yard, but when I first made that flower bed I had to seek advice because, quite honestly, I’m not good with plants. My wife isn’t either. In fact, I think between the two of us, we’ve killed …

Defining Moments Shorts | Spiritual Formation

 

 
Dallas Willard says, “Spiritual formation is the process that the disciple goes through to take on the inward character of Christ in their heart, soul, mind, strength and neighbour”

Leadership from the Inside Out Part 5: A Well-Ordered Heart – Rob Hare

Do you remember the classic comedy Fawlty Towers?  John Cleese played the character of Basil Fawlty – definitely not a man with a ‘well-ordered heart!’  Basil was probably the most stressed out, over-worked, insulting, manipulating, cynical hotel owner that ever existed!  Of course being a Christian does not mean that life runs smoothly – although …

Leadership from the Inside Out Part 4: Keeping it Simple – Rob Hare

Occasionally I watch programmes like Grand Designs.  It’s amazing to watch the transformation of an old water tower or some other ruin into a beautiful family home or eco-friendly space.  However, I have to remind myself that after the (sometimes) years of hard work – the ups and downs of project managing your dream home and the …
