Season 3: Episode 5 | Values and Practices For Opening to God Together

What is the first thing that goes when a leadership team gets busy? Does community mean two hours of checking in about how the kids and grandkids are doing? Ruth and Steve have a rich conversation about values and practices that helps us live together as a leadership community. The good news is that values are always present in a leadership group, so you don’t start with a blank slate. We conclude episode 5 discussing a variety of practices and values that have impacted leadership communities Ruth and Steve have belonged to.
