Keeping Track of Things
We now can answer the question from last week (what type of leader we are- Cultural, Structual, or Informal) a little better. After diving deeper we learned that there are main words that go with each type of leader. Or how each one views an organization. The Structual leader views people or an organization as a machine, Cultural views things as a family, and the Informal leader views things like a jungle. From these key words we expanded them and found our best fit. However, to be a good leader you must use a little of all three even though we all excel at one more then the others. So there is a lot to keep track of. What type of leader am I? How are my goals coming (the ones I made at the begging of the summer) it being 3 weeks away from the end of the program? And what is my bowling score? That is right my bowling score… Our Wednesday activity this week was bowling. It was very old school and we had to keep track of our score on paper, no computer systems present. It was a learning experience for all. So how do you score a strike? Here are some pictures from the bowling night:
Our verse this week was Psalm 126:
1 When the LORD brought back the captives to [a] Zion,
we were like men who dreamed.
2 Our mouths were filled with laughter,
our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
“The LORD has done great things for them.”
3 The LORD has done great things for us,
and we are filled with joy.
4 Restore our fortunes, [c] O LORD,
like streams in the Negev.
5 Those who sow in tears
will reap with songs of joy.
6 He who goes out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with him.
We need to remember that as God’s people we live between “memory and hope”. We need to remember what God has done for us and look ahead for what we still hope God will do.
