Check out my top two recent reads and feel free to contact me at the church office sometime if you want to talk about them.
• Slow Church: Cultivating Community in the Patient way of Jesus by C. Christopher Smith and John Pattison
– I bought slow church for my wife, Jen, and she has really enjoyed it. It is about the need to take the time for personal relationships and how this is the most effective way to build a church that is deep and wide. At least that is what I have gotten from my conversations with Jen 🙂
• Lead With Wisdom: How Wisdom Transforms Good Leaders into Great Leaders by Mark Strom
– Lead with wisdom is an excellent book because it turns conventional leadership on its head. Mark argues for the priority of persons over performance or program and that spending time in conversation with no predetermined outcome can create lasting change.
