As a boy growing up on a farm in North Dakota, I remember standing next to my father as he'd call to our herd of cattle; it was a long, low call, “Com’aaahn.” I was always impressed that the cattle on the other side of the pasture, a quarter of a mile to a half a mile away, would hear his voice and start sauntering across the green pasture toward my dad.
This past week I was spending time with the pastor of a mega-church who had recently retired after serving at his church for almost 40 years.

We share another article from the Christian Leadership Alliance blog written by Gary Hoag, Kairos teaching team member.

In February 2019, Gary Hoag, a member of the Kairos Project teaching team, wrote an article for the Christian Leadership Alliance. It focused on asking the right questions and provided valuable direction for boards. Hoag highlighted the book, The Council, which he co-wrote with Greg Henson and Wes Willmer.
This week's article was published by the Oikonomia Network in February 2019.
