Biblical Themes

What You Will Learn...

This course brings teaching on being and choosing good leaders in our current political climate. A study to prepare our lives for participation in a flourishing democracy building one nation through neighbourliness. 

When leadership fails, society disintegrates. When leadership succeeds, relationships are healed and community thrives. The pace at which our present global community is disintegrating is an indictment on all of us and not just the few who hold leadership positions. Only a prompt return to the biblical model revealed in the Torah and in Jesus’ life and teachings guarantees us deliverance from the path of self-destruction we presently thread.

The time is upon us now to muster the boldness to critique our modern leadership/ followership dynamics and find the objectivity to embrace a more viable alternative in our quest for nation building – the biblical leadership model.
