you can be both a common person and an amazing leader

Christianity has the best answers to the world’s dilemma.  (Anyone who would disagree with this assertion will surely have no viable alternative to suggest in place of the Church.)  The Church has the Truth and We have the Way.  What we struggle with is leadership both IN the Church and OUT of it.  We should be influencing and impacting more and more . . . not less and less.  But we need fewer Supermen and Wonder Women.  We need everyday leaders.

Check out Part One of this two part series by Thom Rainer on how common people make the best leaders:  Link.

Simple and straight-forward, yet so, so true.
