Who are we without faith?

Posted on May 29, 2016 at 18:00 0 Comments

In my work I have often been expected to take sides, to be for or against a proposal. Such black and white dichotomies do not fit easily with my personality. I am sure that there are usually more than two sides to any story. It’s the same with the role of religion in development. Discussion is usually polarised. Religion, is it for good or for bad? For me the answer must be that it is both, and to deal with this we need to become more aware of the multiple dimensions of faith in our…

Accepting the mantle of mentoring

Read this… and then we can talk”. Those were the very first words my new colleague said on my first day at work. He placed a pile of papers from a South African organization on my desk. Of course I did as he asked. I realized as I read that I could not have had a better introduction to the exciting, yet chaotic and frustrating story of human and organizational change. It touched my heart, and I realized that I had found a soul mate in my new colleague. He also became my…

As soon as I clicked ‘Send’ I knew I had made a mistake. I knew that this message was not the sort to write and send in anger. At the same time I felt a rush of excitement. I thought: ‘Finally I’m showing some guts, I’m proving I’m no longer just a lap-dog’.

 

My email essentially accused a group of colleagues of being the root cause of the culture of criticism that I felt had come to permeate all our office interactions. In my brief moment of ‘righteous fury’ I was convinced…

Start with the small things

A friend came to visit me in my office. She is newly employed as an administrator at the parish level of one of our Swedish churches. We talked about our children and things in general for a while. Then she said suddenly:

“It took me a while to figure out what was wrong with my new job. I have just realized that people around me look stuck. They do not expect results. They do not even want to develop and change. We are just supposed to do the things we do and that is…

Hi Lorentz,

I forgot to mention this. But more than a year ago, someone emailed me asking why OD is written on the welcome section. I tried to explain what OD is but he really hope that it was not abbreviated. He even gave me an alternative sentence to go with it. I told him I can't do anything about it.
