Do you feel discouraged because the realities of life have caused you to be disillusioned? Well, maybe you feel cynical. We've seen visionaries succumb to cynicism in these times, or at least cause them to coast. Today, our guests provide hope for us by calling this disillusionment a gift. Listen in as they talk about moving past the false hope of idealism to discover true Christian hope.
Those of us in leadership at Christian organizations feel a call from God to serve, and also a vision for how our organization can make a difference in the world. That sense of vision and passion motivates our work. But what do you do when idealism hits unmet expectations and painful experiences? How do you lead forward through difficulties? Our guests today will give us insight into this important issue as we look for hope that will endure.
I’m delighted to welcome Chris Horst, chief advancement officer, and Peter Greer, CEO of HOPE International. In their leadership, they have been committed to working with BCWI for a flourishing workplace at HOPE International. Peter and Chris have recently co-authored a book – The Gift of Disillusionment: Enduring Hope for Leaders After Idealism Fades.
