5 for Leadership (3/9/13)

images-2Here are the 5 for this week. We have some “never do’s” for social media, culture thinking for the church, the need for resiliency, the end game for LD, and a right response to March 8th. I hope you find something that inspires you and proves beneficial.

Create A Contrast Culture In Your Church  This was found on the Gospel Coalition blog and written by Jonathan Leeman. He highlights the profound difference between church programs and cultivating a culture that leads to greater effectiveness in carrying out the mission of the church.

International Women’s Day: A Christian Response to Violence Against Women  This final post is in celebration of International Women’s Day, which was yesterday, March 8th. This day was declared in 1975 by the United Nations, yet the U.S. still does not acknowledge it as such. But while I lives in Italy it was recognized meaningful ways and with parties. Kathy Erb highlights why this day must call out out attention as followers of Christ.

There are the 5 for this week. I hope you have a great weekend.
