Leadership as Watchfulness


Gannon Sims offers excellent insight on watchfulness over at Duke’s Call and Response Blog.  He says  of watchfulness:

It’s a good word for the church. In his instructions to the church at Colossae, Paul asks his readers to be watchful. Leadership trades more often in words like ‘vision’ and ‘future.’ These are not bad words. But sometimes our attempts to vision the future blur the world right before our eyes. Vision and future allude to coming events. They’re like marks on a trajectory. Watchfulness is more than that. It’s a constant state of being and becoming.

Read the entire post.  Good thoughts on this Friday as you and I prepare for Sunday.
