There are a lot of expectations on church leaders these days.

You will be suckered into staying up late at night worrying about…

where you focus

how you preach

who you please

what you wear

But I thought this quote from Henri Nouwen in In the Name of Jesus: Reflections on Christian Leadership brought what really mattered into focus.

“The central question is, are the Leaders of the future truly men and women of God, people with an ardent desire to dwell in God presence, to listen to God’s voice, to look at God’s beauty, to touch God’s incarnate Word and to taste fully God’s infinite goodness?”

This is the question I want to keep me up late at night.
