Leadership on Mission–October 25, 2016

Silence and Solitude
by Kent Carlson

NAB Vice President of Leadership Formation

“But what’s the point?”

I had just spent a few minutes trying to explain to this long-time friend of mine the importance of solitude as a crucial and irreplaceable discipline of the spiritual life. He wasn’t buying it. He is a man of high integrity and authenticity, so he wasn’t going to give me the “smile-and-nod” treatment. He had tried solitude; it didn’t work.

Grieving the loss of Dr. Gordon Stork

We have lost one of God's faithful servants in the NAB family this week. Dr. Gordon Stork went home to be with the Lord Friday while in Winnipeg for the Manitoba Baptist Association meetings this weekend. Gordon was the regional minister for the Northern Plains Region serving churches in Manitoba, Montana, North and South Dakota.

Listening in Prayer
by Dan Hamil
NAB Executive Director
 

In 1988, Bill Hybels penned a book whose title alone is worth the price. The book is Too Busy Not to Pray. As spiritual leaders, we find the busyness of our lives—the pace of decisions and deadlines—overwhelming at times. In these seasons of hectic pace, we tend to drop items off our schedules that we believe can be postponed or passed over without significant loss.

Praying Schripture

by Norm Poehlke
NAB Vice President of Ministry Outreach

As we continue to bring our leadership focus onto the theme of prayer this month, I thought it might be helpful for us to spend some time reflecting on our need to hear from God in prayer. This is not so much the activist prayer of agenda, but the submissive prayer of listening, of being still, of paying attention.
