Don’t Just Do Something; Pray

President Franklin D. Roosevelt inaugurated the modern tendency of U.S. Presidents to push a heavy agenda during their first 100 days in office. By contrast, Jesus spent the first 40 days of his new ministry alone in the desert, seeking God’s will and guidance. Those who are called to Christian leadership are better served by imitating Jesus than by imitating Roosevelt. The early and sustained practice of prayerful active listening for God’s guidance is a central discipline for clergy and congregational leaders. For more on pursuing your ministry vocation faithfully, read this article on the website of Faith & Leadership, an offering of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity.
