The Fears of Leaders and Invitations for Growth
Fears keep us up late at night and sitting down in meetings. Some fear that the next change will cause core members to leave. Others fear that we will finally be exposed as an imposter. Fear in all its unique presentations both haunts and paralyzes us. We can see fear not as force for destruction, but as an invitation to growth. For us to be who we were created to be, we are required to go where we don’t want to go.
Luke is the Senior Minister of Westover Hills Church. Luke hosts the Newsworthy with Norsworthy Podcast, a weekly podcast discussing spirituality, Christianity, and anything else that seems news worthy. In more than 300 podcasts, Luke interviews leading thinkers such as N. T. Wright, Barbara Brown Taylor, Miroslav Volf, Walter Brueggemann and John Ortberg.
Luke’s first book God over Good was released in October, 2018. Richard Rohr says “Luke transparently shares the struggle many have with a faith focused on certain answers because that type of faith ends up delivering only more questions. But Luke doesn’t leave us there; he shows us a way to the other side of cynicism. God isn’t what we always expect, but God is always beautiful.”
