Art or Craft?

Been reading some stuff about leadership today, amongst all the other things which have been going on. It’s interesting how often it comes back to the sense of humour – as in this on Commitment: ‘A sense of humour and proportion and a certain light heartedness are important here if fanaticism and obsession are to be avoided.’ I find that interesting – on one hand, the single-mindedness and focus which is required to bring about change in an organisation as fuzzy as the church; on the other, the need for a degree of self-objectivity to the point of gentle self-mockery if one is to continue to have the ability to relate to others and the resilience necessary to continue against all the odds.
