If ever there was a time for leaders to be able to navigate a crisis now is the time as we cross uncharted waters of the current pandemic. But if ever there was a leader in the past who experienced navigating unchartered areas, even if more in the desert than at sea, it is Moses. Although Moses did not have any of the online options we have found so helpful in our current situation, Moses was faced with responding to a plague, facing an unjust situation, crossing a sea in a new way, leading a group of people through a challenging wilderness and mentoring a new generation of leaders for new challenges that lay ahead. Why not create some space in your wilderness to spend some time walking in the footsteps of this great man of faith and discovering how wisdom from the past can help you grow in new ways in the present?
May God bless you on your journey. We will all get through this together –Dr TJ
