For Leaders

Go to the people
Live among them
Learn from them
Love them
Start with what they know
Build on what they have
But of the best leaders,
When their task is done,
The people will remark,
"We have done it ourselves!"
~Unfortunately, I forgot to write down where I got this. It's not mine, I will say that. :)

Tawny,
This is definitely good advice, but for Christian leaders, I think I'd change the last sentence to "God has done it Himself" instead =)!!

I started a blog if you're interested, here:

I only have 2 posts so far, but they're long enough for about 10 =}!! ('Guess I had too much stuff 'waiting in the wings' for too long - hopefully it's more God than me though =)!

Hi Dana,

I agree with you. I don't think this is a Christian quote though. I just like the challenge of not getting any credit and being fine with it. :)

I went and peeked at your blog, I will have to schedule in some time to read it! I am glad you are blogging though. I always like your comments on Brent's blog. :)
