i had a really good talk today with our small group/volunteer pastor at our church. we were talking about how student ministries is totally re-organizing our strategy on how we do groups. it was one of those conversations that you wish you could have recorded or had a court reporter in the room with you. i really felt God leading us toward some profound truth when it comes to community and relationships.
he said that high level professional coaches are some of the best leaders around and i totally agree. they teach and motivate those who play for them. and those coaches who are the best at what they do, teach and motivate players to do things that they would not be able accomplish without that coach leading them.
are we leading those who God has placed in our lives in this way? are we leading people toward the relationship with God that they were created to live?
