Movements with longevity are sustained through shared, easily understood language.
This most often comes through the development of axioms – short, memorable phrases that capture the essence of truth in simple ways.
Reflecting on the last two decades of leading Emotionally Healthy Discipleship, I’ve been able to identify at least 10 core axioms (probably more like 25!) that have stood the test of time. In many ways, they are a “cliff-notes” introduction to an emotionally healthy church culture.
In today’s podcast, I share the first 5 timeless axioms that have shaped the culture of what we call Emotionally Healthy Leadership. (ie. “Jesus may be in your heart, but grandpa is in your bones.”
If you are a leader, these axioms are extremely helpful to use with your teams as simple ways to build a healthy team and church culture.
I pray you will memorize them, ponder them, and make space to allow the biblical truth to penetrate you.
