Leaders have the daily challenge of maintaining perspective and doing what matters in the long-term, not what others demand we do now or what seems most pressing in the moment. We must lead with our hands on today’s plow, but our eyes fixed on tomorrow’s horizon.
Gateway Seminary will host Dr. J. D. Greear, the President of the Southern Baptist Convention, for special events this week. We will have chapel on Wednesday, 11:00 a.m., featuring Dr. Greear. We will follow chapel with a leadership luncheon, including an interview and question/answer time with Dr. Greear. If you are in the Ontario area, you can join us for chapel or if not, you can view the live stream online.
The Super Bowl halftime show featuring Shakira and Jennifer Lopez left me confused. Some secular reviewers felt the same dilemma. One asked whether the show empowered or objectified women. Good question.
