Dealing with leadership failings

Posted on March 19, 2017 at 18:00 1 Comment

Most of us are probably a bit shocked by the way Paul dealt with leadership ills: ‘When Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned….’ (Galatians 2:11-14). Many of us shy away from confrontation, believing in some way that it’s not appropriate Christian behaviour.

But this passage demonstrates a good way to address leadership issues in our churches and Christian organisations. Whether it is a moral lapse, sexual abuse, habitual failings, or…

Our car had broken down. It was just before Christmas Day. Passers-by crowded around. The driver had just stopped briefly to buy something and now the vehicle refused to respond.

Indecision is a real problem in leadership, especially churches. But failing to confront issues has led to death of many successful initiatives. History is replete with many examples of how indecision shipwrecked institutions: the sinking of Titanic, Lehman brothers and even the global financial crisis. Leaders want to be popular and hope business can go on as usual. They fail to decide and pay the price.

I remember one time I had a nasty boil on my body…

Posted on May 11, 2014 at 18:00 2 Comments

The world is now talking of ‘less’ in almost every new innovation that is coming on the market. We now are seeing paperless offices, tubeless tyres, cordless appliances, wireless phones and many more ‘less’ innovations. I wonder if the same ‘less’ can be said of church leadership today. It got me thinking and even daring to question myself. What I all too often see is:
