These are difficult times economically. It’s a challenging, challenging time for the church. It’s a great time to be a leader.

Impossible situations are the crucible of great leaders. Think of the great presidents. FDR, Lincoln, etc. All the great presidents led in challenging times. It called forth their very best.

All the great leaders have had one characteristic in common. It is to confront, unequivocally, the major anxiety of their people in their time.”
