If you want to raise up the next generation of leaders, then allow the next generation to lead alongside you. Yes, they will do things differently. No, they won’t think like you in every respect. But they will take ownership and responsibility if you give them that opportunity, blessing and support. Question is: is it about you or is it about God’s agenda in your church and community?
If it is about you, then why?
If it is about God’s agenda, then what is God saying and how is he moving? What is next concerning how will you get there alongside your emerging leaders?
Off you go, discuss. Not with me so much. With them. They are the ones who will make it happen with you. I’m just a crotchety old meddler…
Besides, I’ve got my own community to engage in conversation in the days ahead.
