How we do Christmas as leaders is critically important. Pete talks about the concept of a Blue Christmas, which offers permission for people to stop and pay attention to their losses, while at the same time remembering the power and goodness of God.
In part 1 of this two-part series, Pete shares a biblical perspective on growing older and how this informs our understanding of "retirement" (really only a transition to the next phase of what God has for us), of work, and of how we lead people of all ages in our churches.
How is Christian planning and decision making different from that of secular planning and decision making? Pete touches on the dangers of making plans and decisions without God, and the four characteristics of what it means to follow God’s slow ways in planning and decision making.
In part two of this series on triggers, hot buttons, and leadership, Pete shares six steps for how leaders can become aware of their triggers and hot buttons and how they can continue to grow in discipleship.
