Followership: Not Always Easy (2)

Sweet continues to explore the challenges that attend being a true follower….

Leadership-centric cultures tend to create protective force fields around top-dogs.  Their attitudes and character, unseen from the pulpit and concealed in the foyer, are off-limits to underlings.  But in a follower culture everyone is expected to have the courage to participate in the ongoing process of transformation into the image of Christ.  This goes for everyone, regardless of their role within the community.  Each participant should be…allowed and expected to speak into the lives of individuals and the corporate community as well” (p. 53).

  1. Thank you for bringing me the essence of Len’s book, I Am a Follower. I am reading Viral and Jesus Drives Me Crazy at this time and the Holy Spirit has blessed me with Len’s devotion to our Lord. I am so thankful for your blogs also. They are a great blessing to me.
