Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership
Ruth Haley Barton

Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership

"I'm tired of helping others enjoy God." "I just want to enjoy God for myself." With this painful admission, Ruth Haley Barton invites us to an honest exploration of what happens when spiritual leaders lose track of their souls. Weaving together contemporary illustrations with penetrating insight from the life of Moses, Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership explores topics such as

    responding to the dynamics of calling
    facing the loneliness of leadership
    leading from your authentic self
    cultivating spiritual community
    reenvisioning the promised land
    discerning God's will together

Each chapter includes a spiritual practice to ensure your soul gets the nourishment it needs. Forging and maintaining a life-giving connection with God is the best choice you can make for yourself and for those you lead.
