Missional Church 5 -- Missional Leadership

My work week this week has allowed me the freedom for some quiet reading and reflection this afternoon. I have begun to read The Missional Leader: Equipping Your Church to Reach a Changing World . It is good. I will probably write on it in the coming days. Right now, I am realizing that I have deeply embraced the ideology of being missional but have not formed the habits and practices needed to lead in a missional manner. I think the Lord will use the book to help move me into these new ways. I'll let you know what happens.

The Missional Leader is one of the best books I've read in years. It offers ideas and insights that are refreshing and liberating. Here's what I wrote about it a few weeks ago:

I will look forward to your thoughts and review of this book. It's on my long term list of books to eventually buy and read, but honestly it is one that I would likely keep putting off for quite a while just because it looks too "popular." If the substance of it is good, according to your review, I'll move it up the list.
