Leadership and Loneliness

The nature of the Trinity means that even God is never alone. Our God is “a kind of conversation rather than silence.” And because God has eternally chosen to be for us in Christ we are never alone either.  Against this theological certainty of community is the disillusionment of the Enlightenment. With its dictum, “man is the measure of all things,” the Enlightenment philosophically severs individual persons from all connections and creates a subjective sense that is profoundly alone. Between these two poles the clergy must learn to lead and to exercise leadership. In this interview, Duke Divinity School Chapel Dean Samuel Wells reflects on the nature and experience of loneliness. Although we may sometimes be lonely, Wells says, with God we are never truly alone.
