Gary Runn’s Blog is consistently wise and good (as you would expect, if you know Gary). Two great posts from the last couple weeks:
- To lead something that is simple is to lead something that is insignificant.
- Delegation vs. Empowerment
Delegation largely raises up followers-empowerment raises up leaders.
Delegation is less work for you in the short run-empowerment is more work for you in the short run.
Delegation is more work for you in the long run-empowerment is less work for you in the long run.
GREAT comments on two CCCBlogference posts wrestling with very important questions for the future of building Cru movements and reaching every student. Join the Conversation!
- Are we really doing Evangelism in the first weeks on campus? – Great thoughts on whether Movement Building actually is just “Gathering” instead of “Winning”. If you don’t have time, just skip the podcast and go to the comments!
- This post has the same topic but the comments veer toward what needs to change for us to more effectively reach Hispanic students (because what we’re doing currently isn’t working). Great stuff.
I have definitely not seen views on this change among students on campus, but hopefully it will trickle down in the coming years/decades. This brief post says that many in academia are now saying that it is ridiculous/insulting to believe that all religions are just different paths up the same mountain (via DJJenkins‘ link on Twitter).
