Spirit Driven Leadership was established to provide leadership training with the theme “hearts touching hearts.” We offered this without cost to a world-wide audience. Soon it was evident that there was also a need for other types of literature developed by our authors to be made available to that same audience. So, currently we provide learning material to adults (ages 13 to 113) who want to be inspired to live a wonderful life and also to develop themselves for leadership roles.
This moment was a picture of what a sparkling spring day should be in the garden. "Buzz." "Buzz." "Buzz." Bees busily bounced from flower to flower dotting the peaceful calm.
The question: What is Leadership? What does leadership mean to you? One question asked multiple ways. We went around US Digital Outreach and asked members and leaders of Non-Profits that very question. These are the answers they gave us.
The following story is an imaginative tale taken from the Bible account of Christ's birth. The story is fictional and does not include any actual expository study of the scriptures. The purpose is to stimulate deeper thought and appreciation into the mighty gift of Hope given us through the birth of Christ.
Mary took a deep breath and looked intently toward the sky. "Joseph", she cried "look at all those stars"!
I have a secret to share with you. I hate ice skating.
It all starts with those scary, ill-fitting boots that have razor thin, hideous blades attached to the bottom. Putting them on is no big deal, but I don't get how on earth I'm expected to walk in these torture devices to the ice that I am then supposed to gracefully glide on as if I'm straight out of a Norman Rockwell portrait.
But I summon up the necessary courage and begin my way to the ice. .
Hey, look at that. The first star in the sky. Hey, that means I can make a wish and get whatever I want. All right. I wish I might, I wish I may, have this wish I wish today. Uh...I wish for all the junk food I can eat... Okay, where is it? Come on, star! We have a deal here. Now listen, star! Gimme my junk food or I'll take you to court! I demand what is...
Yes, folks, this is Flash, the roving reporter, here at the scene of what is obviously a civil disturbance. Sir, what is the problem here?
I have been created far inferior to others. The thought came as a shock in high school.
The implication rocked me. God loves me less than others.
My school idolized sports stars and leaders. I developed slowly, performed poorly in classes, and stumbled around the sports field. I did not know why God loved me less but concluded He did. When I evaluated my gifts, abilities, and achievements against those of others, I came up short.
Caught in between war and peace, as I walk the wire of self preservation holding onto gravity with everything in me
On one side rebellion rages like a storm, on the other obedience whispers softly like a gentle breeze calling to set me free
I am breaking to pieces as the walls of my past close in all around, my feet have only this sacred ground to call home
Dad sat watching in the stands as my second home run of the game sailed past the left field fence. Our team had just defeated the former Little League champions, and it was my hit that provided the margin of victory. I rounded third base and glanced up, hoping to capture a glimpse of him among the ecstatic crowd that pressed against the fence. My peek into the throng of onlookers lasted only a moment in real time but became a memory that replayed in slow motion i....
He drew His first breath in a stable where, for generations, men had shut away the sheep, the goats, the donkeys and oxen... perhaps for centuries. And in that breath the dust of mud walls and dung floors, of sun dried hay and sun baked bricks, carried the history of his family, his tribe and his people.
His first breath was strong with the scent of the land: laced with the musky sweat of the beasts, the fetid dung, musty hay... the coppery, rusty ...
Bill Hybels, pastor of Willow Creek Community Church, south Barrington, Illinois, jumps right into his subject… being sensitive to Spirit lead opportunities in our everyday lives, moments where our paths cross the paths of acquaintances or strangers and the Spirit gives us a nudge that says, "This one. Speak to this one. Listen. Get to know this one."
Too often, according to Bill, we are wrapped up in what he calls …

After a grueling 50-mile bike ride in record heat along the coast of San Diego, California. My hair is matted to my head, I'm sunburn, dirty and exhausted but it was a grand adventure and I got a good story from the experience.
I had just become acclimated to the fact that I was middle-aged when almost out of nowhere I began to receive unsolicited correspondence from AARP and other organizations that cater to senior citizens. Senior citizen?
