Edwin Friedman says, “To be a leader, one must both have and embody a vision of where one wants to go. It is not a matter of knowing or believing one is right; it is a matter of taking the first step.”

Leaders go first.

They just do.

When they don’t, they fail to lead.

You may be an educator, an encourager, a tactician, a chaplain, an historian, a counselor, an entertainer, a soother, a manager, or a caretaker, but that does not make you a leader. And, leadership is essential for the Church to be the Church.

Isn’t it?
