Whether you work in a church, parachurch organization or company, the struggle to communicate can sometimes leave your culture in a painful, frustrating place.

We've all heard the expression from hurried people that they're running from one thing to another as if their hair is on fire. Is this what God wants for your lives? Well, listen in as our guest today talks about practical steps for leaders to live an unhurried life.

Sometimes, a quote from a book is all that’s needed to stop you in your tracks and say, “Wow.”

Here’s what I mean. Listen to this quote from a book, I’ve just finished:

“Unholy hurry may make me look busy, but too often it keeps me from actually being fruitful in the ways Jesus wants me to be.”

As I read it again, let the words soak in:

“Unholy hurry may make me look busy, but too often it keeps me from actually being fruitful in the ways Jesus wants me to be.”

These words from a fantastic book titled, An Unhurried Leader: The Lasting Fruit of Daily Influence. The book’s author, Alan Fadling, is my guest today. Welcome to our podcast, Alan!
