Casting-off the Critics

It is not the critic who counts

Last week during the Willow Creek Association Global Leadership Summit, one of the leaders speaking pointed out that if a pastor wasn’t being criticized, they weren’t doing their job right.  It can be hard to remember that the complaints of those we serve are actually a sign that we are doing something right as leaders.  So to encourage you today, I share with you a Teddy Roosevelt quote that edified me when Brene Brown shared it at the Summit.  Remember, those who are least willing to step out in risk-taking service to others will almost always be your greatest critics.
