Publisher's Description

Throughout his time as bishop, Will Willimon has once a week sat down at his computer and tapped out short messages to the churches under his care. Sometimes his intention has been to comfort and console; sometimes it’s been to motivate and inspire. Sometimes he’s written deeply theological meditations on the mystery of the Resurrection; other times, he’s spoken in highly practical terms about what goes into making an affective congregation. Sometimes he wrestles with thorny issues of the day, like religion and politics; other times he lists the things you should do during the first week of a new pastorate. Always he’s brought to the task his trademark humor and insight.  
A Will to Lead and the Grace to Follow brings together dozens of these messages, each of them a gem of pastoral advice. If you want to know about the ins and outs, the highs and lows, of being a leader of God’s people, you’ve come to the right place.
