leadership

19.jpgbefore i start this post, i should respond to fred’s post about vantage point. i whole heartedly agree with his take on it all. though there weren’t any objections to seeing it as i recall. plus as my movie going luck would have it, we probably wouldn’t have enjoyed 21 either.

on to other things…i finally got all my books for practitioners (late i know). i’m starting off with next generation leader, and all i can say is that i dig andy stanley. the thoughts aren’t revolutionary, but they are great observations that are all around us but just don’t notice regularly. i’m looking forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts on this book. i’d share all mine but then i wouldn’t have anything to say in april.
however i did stumble upon a quote on a blog i read on a regular basis that i thought i would share.

the greatest opposition to what God is doing today comes from those who were on the cutting edge of what God was doing yesterday.  -R.T. Kendall

this quote is easy for us to look at as ‘ya those old guys won’t let us do this or that’. but my immediate reaction was, will i be ‘one of those creating opposition’ when i get older? or am i at risk of that sooner than 20 years from now? any thoughts?

    yeah, you’re right I didn’t put up much of a fight.

    I like this quote from Batterson, I worry about the same thing though I don’t know if I would have ever put into words like that. At the same time, I wonder if I change so often that nothing has a chance to stick.
