Ur Video: John Dickson on Humility
Are you wielding power for your sake or for others?
The next Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit is around the corner (August 11-12). For those of you unfamiliar with the event, its list of speakers (or "faculty" as the WCA likes to call them) has tended to follow a tried and true recipe. This year is no different.
Along with the obligatory baby boomer megachurch pastors, there must be at least one CEO of a popular consumer brand for credibility (2011: Howard Schultz, Starbucks), one politician for controversy (2011: Cory Booker, Mayor of Newark), one best-selling business guru for stability (2011: Seth Godin, Tribes), one spiky haired young pastor for vitality (2011: Steven Furtick), one social crusader for conscience (2011: Mama Maggie Gobran, "Mother Teresa" of Cairo), and one Australian just because we like the accent (2011: John Dickson).
All kidding aside, the Aussie role will be filled this year by John Dickson from the Centre (yes, r before e...remember, it is the "Global" Leadership Summit) for Public Christianity. He's written about the nature of humility. In this short video he unpacks his definition. It's worth watching and discussing. Do you agree with his take?
