November Word of The Month

November's word of the month is Hospitality.

“In 1997, while Rosaria Butterfield was researching the Religious Right ‘and their politics of hatred against people like me [a member of the LGBT community],’ she wrote an article against the Promise Keepers. A response to that article triggered a meeting with Ken Smith, who became a resource on the Religious Right and their Bible, a confidant, and a friend.”

I want to direct your attention to the last word in the quote above: friend. Over the course of the months that followed their initial meeting, Ken Smith and his family simply invited Rosaria into their home with an authentic intentionality that was fueled by the gospel. By inviting her to join in their family dinners where there were continuous conversations about the gospel, Rosaria witnessed their family devotions and love displayed through Christ. Her time with them eventually led to her salvation and conversion to Christianity. Read More.

Weekly Q Source Topic -FAILURE (Q4.5)


An Undesirable Outcome That Builds The Leadership Foundation

Failure is the crucible of the Leadership Development Process

From Schooling, a man obtains the head-knowledge of what a Leader is supposed to do and be. Through Apprenticeship, he turns this head-knowledge into the heart-knowledge that he will need to Influence Movement to Advantage. Opportunity then provides him with the Practice necessary for him to exert Virtuous Leadership in positions of increasing responsibility and importance to the Groups of which he is a Member.

So where does Failure fit into the Leadership development equation? What does it add to a man’s Leadership Foundation? If he already knows what a Virtuous Leader does and is–and is able is able to do and be those things himself–why must a Leader also Fail?

The reason is that Failure is a crucible. It is the forge by which a Leader is purified through the burning away of his me-first self-regarding nature. It matures him. Without Failure (and lots of it), a Leader will retain too much of who he was and keep doing what he did, rather than being fully transformed into what a Virtuous Leader is and consistently do what a Virtuous Leader does. A man cannot become a Virtuous Leader without the chance to Fail and learn from it. Through Failure he learns how to truly sacrifice and subordinate himself to needs of the Group and its Members. It is Failure that teaches a man to Live Third. Read More
