Roaring Lambs?

Salt, Light, Impact ... that's the Kingdom of God.
Preserve, guide, build ... that's the Kingdom way.
Perservere, love, challenge ... those are Kingdom initiatives.

Roaring Lambs, as Bob Briner coined the unlikely combination of words, are to be about the business of impacting the culture right where they are. I couldn't agree more or feel more strongly about that than I do. That we are to be about the business of making disciples as we go.

When many of us read the 'Great Commission' and Jesus says 'Go and make disciples...' most of us think of going somewhere else to do that. But, I heard one preacher say that a better interpretation of that passage is 'Since you are going anyway, why don't you make disciples along the way?' Now, that makes a lot of sense for Rising Leaders because you're going anyway. You're on the move anyway. So, Jesus says, 'Hey, while you're out there be salt and light and make disciples.'

I ran across Bob Briner's website dedicated to 'Roaring Lambs' earlier today and noticed that they had leadership lessons. I've read through several of them and although I believe that the author 's-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-s' some of the Biblical references to make them support a point he'd like to get across that there's still something to be learned from these lessons. So, I'm passing the Roaring Lions Leadership Lessons link to you for your growth.

Hey, I'm hammering away on some great ideas for Rising Leaders and I'd love to have you join us in building THE ONLINE COMMUNITY for RISING LEADERS. Just drop an email to me and we'll talk about where Rising Leader Alliance is headed and how you can benefit and take part in that.

You can order Bob Briner's Book, Roaring Lambs from nearly any bookstore. Enjoy.
Please let me know what you think of the book, the leadership links from the roaring lamb website, and whatever else is on your mind regarding growing stronger as a Rising Leader.

Roar you little lamb!
