Your wife and kids should understand. Anyhow, couldn't one of boys take your old one? ; ) I'm surprised at you, Ben. Think creatively man.
Beautiful Ben. I'm there (& 3 friends).
I think faith requires movement, for sure (1 Jn 3:18, Jms 2:18). And maybe this was a comment more suited to yesterday's conversation, but I like Robert Lewis' (Fellowship Church, Little Rock AK) definition of leadership: "Taking responsibility for the benefit for others." I like this because it encompasses those people that we all recognize as leaders, but don't fit the usual "charismatic" profile of a leader. I like this too because it fits Jesus' definition of leadership of "those that would be great (a leader) would be your servant" (Mk 10, I think). This perspective breaks down the barriers of who can be a leader. Age, socio-economic status, or positions of power are not the criteria that determines leadership. Mother Teresa comes to mind as one who fits this description. She was a leader because she took initiative to be the hands and feet of Jesus in the lives of others. So those we see taking initiative to nudge the "arrows" of those around them into alignment with Jesus are the leaders among us.
