those of you who have been in management will know there are seemingly limitless approaches to answering the question of what good leadership is a post from andrea's sacredspace.posterous.com which suggests that church leadership is about helping church members fulfil the vocation that God has for each one of them.
so to do this we need to find a way of encouraging church members to seek out what god's vocation is for them and then to engage in achieving such - or to put it another way to dream dreams
or as frank sang - to dream the impossible dream, to fight the unbeatable foe, to bear with unbearable sorrow, to run where the brave dare not go, to right the unrightable wrong, to be better far than you are, to try when your arms are too weary, to reach the unreachable star, this is my quest, to follow that star, no matter how hopeless, no matter how far, to be willing to give when there's no more to give, to be willing to die so that honour and justice may live, and I know if I'll only be true to this glorious quest, that my heart will lie peaceful and calm when I'm laid to my rest, and the world will be better for this, that one man, scorned and covered with scars, still strove with his last ounce of courage, to reach the unreachable star
