The Cost of Leading a Movement
By Dann Spader
This paper, also presented at a GYI Forum, looks hard at the role of suffering in leadership and how Jesus responded to it. I Peter 2:21 tells us that Jesus left us a pattern to follow in suffering, and Dr. Spader addresses that from his understanding of the Life of Christ. A special section addressing the role of Jesus suffering as being “progressive, complete, and weighty”, has proven to be very helpful for many in a fresh understanding of Jesus’ humanity. Again, this paper is written with discussion questions, making it a great staff development tool.
