Leading by Being
Rev. Nate Walker, Guest Speaker
Sunday, February 1, 2015 at 9:30 and 11:00 am
Our guest speaker, Reverend Nate Walker says, "We, as one strong body, are required to lead by being. When we feel the impulse to be the interrogator we must choose to be the generator of visions larger than ourselves. When we feel the impulse to be enraged we must accept the invitation to be empathetic and no longer make people the object of our aggression. When we feel the impulse to be furious we must be curious. When we feel the impulse to be righteous we must transform our soapbox into a music box. Let us dare to be powerfully playful.”
Reverend Nate Walker is the Community Minister for Religion and Public Life for the Church of the Larger Fellowship. In 2009, he delivered the John Murray Distinguished Lecture and in 2011 participated in the Minns Lectures. His sermon on the intersection of religion and politics became the basis for a book he co- edited, Whose God Rules? Is the United States a Secular Nation or a Theolegal Democracy? (Palgrave Macmillan 2011). Tony Blair wrote the foreword and Cornel West calls it “provocative and pioneering.” Reverend Nate recently published Exorcising Preaching: Crafting Intellectually Honest Worship.
