In this podcast, I share my initial reflections on the difficult season of the coronavirus pandemic that we have just entered. Challenging, hard-to-believe news is coming at a pace that is demanding to absorb for ourselves – let alone the people we lead. Geri and I find ourselves also in a voluntary self-containment with millions of others around the world.
What is God saying? How is He coming to us? How do we lead others in such an unprecedented time of crisis?
I am not sure. But what I do know is that part of good leadership involves normalizing and helping people grieve biblically.
The disorientation in which we find ourselves in will not be going away any time soon. Thus, we must remember, and remind others, that the way we grieve in the new family of Jesus is very different from the world. So, in this podcast, I share with you a very important message from the book of Job where we observe him courageously moving through the three biblical phases of grief. They are:
- Paying Attention to What You are Feeling
- Living in the Confusing In-Between
- Letting the Old Birth the New
May God bless you as you listen and lead others around you for Jesus’ sake,
