I had the privilege of reading the manuscript of Neil Cole's new book, Organic Leadership a few months ago. I found myself saying a resounding "Yes!" on just about every page. It is the best book on leadership written from a simple church perspective that I have read.
On another note, I would appreciate your prayers for my 9 year old granddaughter, Anna. A couple of weeks ago she came down with a mysterious illness called Henloch-Shoerlein purpura–an unpleasant condition consisting of a rash, arthritis and kidney problems. Generally it lasts from 4 to 6 weeks and she should recover completely as long as she does not get kidney complications. She has had some kidney symptoms, although thankfully they are getting less at this point. I have been in Colorado with the family for most of the past couple of weeks helping with Anna and her three younger siblings.
