    3. Consider that we live in at least three worlds.

    4. Consider that we live in at least three worlds.

    13. The Hubble Space Telescope captured this image of a violent collision of two distant galaxies which triggered massive amounts of star formations in a spectacular fireworks show. (Accessed on November 15, 2004 from http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/stars_galaxies/sg_images/hubble_pic_browse.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/stars_galaxies/stargazing/stargazing_image.html&h=286&w=400&sz=13&tbnid=aS9vjMk1n4QJ:&tbnh=85&tbnw=118&start=4&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dplanetary%2Bcollision%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D) Lets draw a parallel. When 2 worlds collide in space, it creates a galactic fireworks show. When 2 worldviews collide, the effects are similar in the social, cultural, and spiritual realms. On the lower left you see the leadership paradigm belonging to modernity. On the upper right you see the leadership paradigm belonging to postmodernity. Notice these are such distinct models that there is no overlap. Modernity was characterized by organizations that were centralized, hierarchical, vertical, mechanistic, executive-oriented, bureaucratic, rigid and transactional. Postmodern organizations are decentralized, flattened, horizontal, team-based, organic, fluid, flexible and transformational. The only connector is the fact that we are in transition from one to another. And it is this period of history, the transition, that we currently find ourselves in. And its bound to be a painful journey for leaders who care to make the trek. But as Ronald Heifitz of Howard Universitys Leadership Education Project asserted, There are lots of things in life that are worth the pain. Leadership is one of them. That statement could never be more true than when applied to this most challenging period of worldview transition.The Hubble Space Telescope captured this image of a violent collision of two distant galaxies which triggered massive amounts of star formations in a spectacular fireworks show.

    19. Why Beer is Better than Religion 1. No one will kill you for not drinking Beer. 2. Beer doesn't tell you how to have sex. 3. Beer has never caused a major war. 4. They don't force Beer on minors who can't think for themselves. 5. When you have a Beer, you don't knock on people's doors trying to give it away. 6. Nobody's ever been burned at the stake, hanged, or tortured over his brand of Beer. 7. You don't have to wait 2000+ years for a second Beer. 8. There are laws saying Beer labels can't lie to you. 9. You can prove you have a Beer. 10. If you've devoted your life to Beer, there are groups to help you stop.

    20. Note: Theological (and philosophical) turnings are important. But so are sociological turnings political turnings economic turnings technological turnings. In your context, the latter turnings may be more important than the former, or inseparable from it.

    29. Discipleship is not limited to what you can understand - it must transcend all comprehension. Plunge into the deep waters beyond your own understanding.... Bewilderment is the true comprehension. Not to know where you are going is the true knowledge. In this way Abraham went forth from his father, not knowing where he was going. You cannot find it in yourself, so you must let [God] lead you as though you were a blind man. Not the work which you choose, not the suffering you devise, but the road which is contrary to all that you choose or contrive or desire - that is the road you must take. - Martin Luther, quoted in The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

    89. John Wesleys Covenant Prayer to be used early in January each new year

    90. I am no longer my own, but yours.

    91. Put me to what you will, rank me with whom you will.

    92. Put me to doing, put me to suffering.

    93. Let me be employed by you or laid aside for you, exalted for you or brought low for you.

    94. Let me be full, let me be empty.

    95. Let me have all things, let me have nothing.

    96. I freely and heartily yield all things to your pleasure and disposal.

    97. And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, you are mine, and I am yours. So be it.

    98. And the covenant which I have made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen.
