Leaders should help others blossom
This is an interesting take on leadership. I don’t like to think of myself as dung (for this reason, I was never a big fan of Luther’s theological fascination with such things). Nevertheless, this cartoon is about right, it seems to me. Church leaders are meant to inspire others to blossom, not to be the flowers that others admire. I might have been content to call myself soil, but there it is.
