For Ourselves:
Almighty and ever-living God, source
of all wisdom and understanding, be
present with us as we take counsel for
the renewal and mission of your
Church. Teach us in all things to seek
first your honor and glory. Guide us to
perceive what is right, and grant us both
the courage to pursue it and the grace to
accomplish it; through Jesus Christ our
Lord. Amen.
For Guidance:
O God, by whom the meek are guided in
judgment, and light rises up in darkness for the
godly: Grant us, in all our doubts and
uncertainties, the grace to ask what you would
have us do, that the Spirit of wisdom may save
us from all false choices, and that in your light
we may see light, and in your straight path we
may not stumble… By the might of your Spirit
lift us, we pray, to your presence, where we may
be still and know that you are God, through
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

A Prayer Attributed to St. Francis:
Lord, make us instruments of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let us sow love; where
there is injury, pardon; where there is discord,
union; where there is doubt, faith; where there is
despair, hope; where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy. Grant that we may
not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand; to be loved
as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it
is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in
dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.

   honduras, CA 1998
In your hearts, set apart Christ
as Lord. Always be prepared
to give an answer to everyone
who asks you to give the
reason for the hope that you
have. But do this with
gentleness and respect...

  • 2. For Ourselves: Almighty and ever-living God, source of all wisdom and understanding, be present with us as we take counsel for the renewal and mission of your Church. Teach us in all things to seek first your honor and glory. Guide us to perceive what is right, and grant us both the courage to pursue it and the grace to accomplish it; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
  • 3. For Guidance: O God, by whom the meek are guided in judgment, and light rises up in darkness for the godly: Grant us, in all our doubts and uncertainties, the grace to ask what you would have us do, that the Spirit of wisdom may save us from all false choices, and that in your light we may see light, and in your straight path we may not stumble… By the might of your Spirit lift us, we pray, to your presence, where we may be still and know that you are God, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Grant that we may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.

Editor's Notes

  1. The Hubble Space Telescope captured this image of a violent collision of two distant galaxies which triggered massive amounts of star formations in a spectacular fireworks show. (Accessed on November 15, 2004 from http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/stars_galaxies/sg_images/hubble_pic_browse.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/stars_galaxies/stargazing/stargazing_image.html&h=286&w=400&sz=13&tbnid=aS9vjMk1n4QJ:&tbnh=85&tbnw=118&start=4&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dplanetary%2Bcollision%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D) Let’s draw a parallel. When 2 worlds collide in space, it creates a galactic fireworks show. When 2 worldviews collide, the effects are similar in the social, cultural, and spiritual realms. On the lower left you see the leadership paradigm belonging to modernity. On the upper right you see the leadership paradigm belonging to postmodernity. Notice these are such distinct models that there is no overlap. Modernity was characterized by organizations that were centralized, hierarchical, vertical, mechanistic, executive-oriented, bureaucratic, rigid and transactional. Postmodern organizations are decentralized, flattened, horizontal, team-based, organic, fluid, flexible and transformational. The only connector is the fact that we are in transition from one to another. And it is this period of history, the transition, that we currently find ourselves in. And it’s bound to be a painful journey for leaders who care to make the trek. But as Ronald Heifitz of Howard University’s Leadership Education Project asserted, “There are lots of things in life that are worth the pain. Leadership is one of them.” That statement could never be more true than when applied to this most challenging period of worldview transition.
