  • Henri Nouwen tells the story of a man on a horse galloping swiftly along the road. An old farmer standing in the fields, seeing him pass by, called out, ‘Hey, rider, where are you going?’ The rider turned around and shouted back, “Don’t ask me, just ask my horse!” I imagine most of us have felt like a passive victim of ongoing, and sometimes out of control, circumstances that we do not always understand. Busy work has robbed us of what we know we were called to do. There can be no understanding of leadership until we are about the work we have been called to do. I believe that the busy-ness has become a seducing spirit to take us away from our real mission. We must never forget that we are people on a mission. If we ever cease to be a missionary movement, we will have not right to survive.
