Raising one’s hand to ask a question may be the most courageous thing a person can do. When someone asks a question in my classes I take note, because they are the students I want to cultivate into leaders. Asking a question is risky. To raise a hand, one must admit they do not know something and risk others interpreting that as a short coming. Opening oneself up to rejection is counter intuitive to many leaders. Many feel a leader should be strong, flawless, always ready with the answers and a plan B. Hebrews and Mark tells of a different kind of leader.

Have you ever been in a contest and you came out first? (children respond)

The Village Shepherd

One thing which perhaps separates humans from other animals, is our sense of justice. According to the documentaries I see on television, other animals seem to be driven by basic needs such as hunger, survival and sex. Their lives are centred around satisfying those needs, and even though some animals display considerable domestic organisation and affection for others of the species, they're still driven by their basic primitive urges.

We could also say that humans are driven by similar urges, but our lives are very

Psalm 104 begins and ends with a unique call to praise. Instead of calling on others to praise the Lord, the psalmist instructs himself: "Bless the Lord, O my soul." This psalm and Psalm 103 are the only places in the Bible where this particular expression occurs. What are we to make of this unusual phrase?
