Leadership Panel

a Biblical thought...
This is how we've come to understand and experience love: Christ sacrificed his life for us. This is why we ought to live sacrificially for our fellow believers, and not just be out for ourselves. If you see some brother or sister in need and have the means to do something about it but turn a cold shoulder and do nothing, what happens to God's love? It disappears. And you made it disappear. (1 John 3:16-17)

a Book thought...
The problem with brickianity is that walls inevitably keep people out. Often it appears as though you have to agree with all of the bricks exactly as they are or you can’t join. (p28 Bell)
a Dave thought...
Yesterday I was part of a leadership panel for the first year cadets at training college. Along with Major Di Corkery, Captains Gen Paterson & Johnmark Snead we were all asked questions about own leadership experiences and we were asked to give our opinions. Even though the four of us had diverse opinions on some of the issues and the way we each engage in ministry, two basic principles stood out to me. Firstly we all agree when we spend time with God we are better leaders, and secondly how well we lead depends on how well we build relationships. Simply put we are called 2Love God & others, when we do that we can influence those around us for the better.

Just a thought.
