Leading in Divided Times

The challenge of community and division

Hands held up in an argument during a meeting.

We are leading in divided times, in society and even within our congregations.

Cultivating Christ-like community is a great challenge in the face of entrenched prejudices, genuine injustice and our own wounds.

How do church leaders preach unity without it sounding hollow? How do we acknowledge the humanity and trauma of every person without minimizing the hurt they may cause? Vulnerability makes space for authentic relationships but is so very risky.

During this month, Faith+Lead will focus on practices, research and mindsets that make space for vulnerability and bring us back together, despite our divided times. 

Please share what you are trying in the Faith+Lead Learning Lab, so we can all support and learn from one another.
