“How to Lead When You’re Not in Charge”
Author: North Point Community Church Pastor Clay Scroggins
Main Idea: Anyone can be a leader, not only those who are first in command.
Excerpt: “Leaders who wrap themselves in the security blanket of ‘If I were in charge’ or ‘When I’m in charge’ as an excuse for poor performance and lack of initiative will most likely never be in charge.”
“Creating Calm in the Center of Crazy”
Author: Seasons Weekend Creator Nicole Johnson
Main Idea: Johnson shares her journey of escaping the hectic pace of life to create time for spiritual growth.
Excerpt: “Multitasking leads to distraction; comparison leads to overcommitment; overcommitment creates pressure that needs to be relieved by distraction; and so on and so on.”
“Goliath Must Fall: Winning the Battle Against Your Giants”
Author: Passion Movement Co-founder and Passion City Church Pastor Louie Giglio
Main Idea: Using the story of David and Goliath as an illustration, Giglio shares how to face all giants in life by focusing on God’s size instead.
Excerpt: “Faith thrives in holy discomfort.”
“The Turquoise Table”
Author: Kristin Schell
Main Idea: Longing for face-to-face connection, suburban mom Schell used a turquoise picnic table in her front yard to cultivate community.
Excerpt: “Sometimes we are called far and wide on a mission, but more often we are called to love others in our everyday, ordinary lives… right where we live: in our own front yards.”
