Will he or will he not retire?

Only in professional sports can you have the leader of your organization waffle and be as wishy washy as Brett Favre has been over the last several years.

Imagine in the Corporate world, the CEO of the company sends a text message to his employees and the board of directors that he is retiring......two months later, he comes back and says he still has some things left in the tank.

In the world in which I lead....the church world....Imagine if a Pastor told the congregation and church board that he was retiring, but came back after the annual business meeting and said you know I think I got one more year of sermons in me. Crazy.

The old leadership principle says not everyone likes strong leadership, but no one likes weak leadership.

Jesus told us in Luke that if you put your hand to the plow and turn back that you are not fit for the Kingdom of God.

Proverbs tells us that without vision, the people parish.

Set the course, stay on target and move forward! I wonder if the Vikings will move forward or be the pawn in the Brett Favre saga. Go Cowboys! :)
