Good Leaders Embrace Their Limits

"If you’re a leader, you aren’t just a package of strengths, gifts, and experiences; you’re also a collection of weaknesses and susceptibilities. Here, the gospel offers such sweet encouragement. We don’t have to fear our limits, because God doesn’t send us out on our own; where he sends us, he goes too." - Paul Tripp

Weak or dysfunctional leadership communities fail to protect leaders from themselves.

Philippians 4:6-7- do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

We got the opportunity last week to interview Tony Carter and visit the small group that he co-leads on Tuesday mornings. Take a moment to hear about his experience as he describes how leading a small group has impacted him.

What Mountain are You Climbing?

Come join YBL & Briarwood Church as we hear Eric Alexander, a professional climber and author, share about the victory we can find in helping others succeed. Eric has climbed the highest peaks on all seven continents, a feat known as the "Seven Summits".

More remarkably, in 2001 he helped his friend, Eric Weinheimer, become the first blind man to climb Mt. Everest. He has since helped Eric summit several other “highest” peaks and has authored a book, The Summit, which shares some of the lessons learned on their trips.

Today, Eric teaches disabled skiers in Vail, Colorado, and directs Adventures Beyond Limits, an organization that educates and encourages youth with disabilities in the outdoors. We hope you will join us as we learn more about how to overcome our limits together.

If you are looking for a new book to read, then we recommend to you one of these.

Here's what our YBL Ministry Director, Phil Reddick, had to say about them: "Vision, leadership, second half, WWII, and essays on God. These books encouraged, motivated and caused me to think this past year. One theme that comes out of many of them, particularly Churchill, is to persevere. Let’s lead, serve and Finish Well."

This morning one our 2nd Half small groups met at Heatherwood Golf and Country Club. This group has been meeting for over 2 years, and they have continued to meet throughout COVID-19. Here is what Charles Yates, a member of the small group, had to say about it:

"I very much value the relationships with the men in our group. When I joined the group, I had just moved back to Birmingham and was grateful for the opportunity to renew friendships and make new ones. I found that we are all in our 2nd Half of life with the same needs, including our identity and life purpose. I have, by God's Grace, experienced a growing spiritual maturity through the study of God's Word and I absolutely look forward to our weekly meetings."

"We do not want to suffer. However, there are things in life which seem to require suffering as the price, and some for which that price is worth paying. Obedience to Jesus is worth suffering to learn."

This is a short preview from Rob's latest blog post on our website. It is a timely word that is encouraging and uplifting which is something we all need. Take a few minutes to check it out and allow God's Word to settle in your heart and mind. Here is the link: https://ybl.org/we-dont-suffer-alone/

Boys Should Be Boys: Raising Future Men and Women

Here is a brief article on the importance of fathering. We believe it will be encouraging and challenging for current fathers and soon-to-be fathers.

In a world of blurred distinctions between male and female, has it ever been more important to raise our boys to be men and our girls to be women?
