My Biggest Regrets: Part 1 – EH Leader Podcast

Posted on May 7th, 2019

Recently, at a meeting with a number of young pastors, Geri and I were asked, “What has been your greatest regret in leadership?” I was taken aback by the question, unsure of where to begin. There were so many. We talked about dual relationships and power (which led the group into a lively, spirited discussion), but I realized that I needed to think much more about that penetrating question.

This led me, over the next several weeks, to ponder the list of my greatest regrets over the last 40 years. I categorized them, edited them, and placed them in an order that began to make sense – at least to me. The process was both painful and freeing. The painful part revolved around vulnerability required to put them down on paper; the freeing part was seeing the love of God who brought me back to himself each time I strayed. I marvel at how he worked in, through, and in spite of my mistakes!

Here are the first four regrets I share in this podcast:

  1. Not understanding dual relationships and power
  2. Impatience and rushing in making key decisions
  3. Not leading (or listening to God) out of our marriage the first nine years
  4. Not working less, resting more, and giving away responsibilities earlier.

Hope you enjoy it.
