Welcome to the first edition of Lay Pastoral Ministry News for 2017. It is going to be exciting year, particularly with the National Pastoral Leaders and Planners Conference in Melbourne during September.
Blessed are leaders who are poor in spirit. Leadership begins with a poverty of spirit. Leadership is an interactive process where leaders and followers influence each other to reach a common goal. Leaders have to realize that without people, there is no leadership. Without free will, it is not leadership. God grants us free will and then invites, inspires and influences us to surrender our free will to God’s will.
