Presence In Absence

If you've ever felt as though God is not active in your life, the book of Exodus is for you. If you've ever felt abandoned by God, the book of Exodus is for you. If you've ever wondered where God is in your life, what happened to the miracles, why he seems so distant or unconcerned, the book of Exodus is for you.

If you regard the Bible as a holy text, one that has special force and authority in your life, I implore you – Read the Bible using the same approach you would use for any other type of communication. To do anything else (even unintentionally) is exceptionally dangerous. It neuters your holy text and places you (the reader) as the arbiter of meaning.

SELF-EXPRESSION?

Warren Bennis wrote in On Becoming a Leader that "full, free self-expression is the essence of leadership." I found the comment a bit obnoxious when I first read it, thinking that it invited leaders to be self-absorbed, but upon reflection I think he's on to something. This post will briefly define terms, getting at the 'why' of each point.
