Celebrating Wesley David Morgan Centre

This week’s Soft Hearts is blessedly short of words. I simply implore you to watch a 5-minute video which was broadcast nationally on A Current Affair around 10 days ago. It features our very own Wesley David Morgan Centre (DMC), dubbed ‘Australia’s Happiest Workplace.’ I dare you to watch it…

Leadership Kryptonite

I’ve been journaling my way through the stories of Israel’s early kings. There are so many lessons for me as a leader – hard lessons. The bible is bracing in surfacing the rebellious spirit lurking in the dark corners of every otherwise beloved human heart. Amidst stories of God’s patient…

What fills your cup?

What fills your cup? What energises you? What replenishes your soul?  I’ve shared before that reading is a life-giving rhythm for me. As a kid, I was so keen I’d read the back of the cereal packet (Weet Bix) at the breakfast table. Over and over again. I’ve always loved…

Churchill Leadership Lessons

I’ve just finished reading Andrew Robert’s magisterial biography of Winston Churchill, a 982-page account of a life so astonishing I had to remind myself repeatedly it wasn’t fiction, but true history. There’s so much to learn from the story of this remarkable, complex man – especially for those of us…

Learning from The Stories of Others

This past year I (re)discovered the beauty and power of well written biography, autobiography and memoir. It began with Philip Yancey’s ‘Where the Light Fell’, a bracing and refreshingly unsentimental articulation of especially the childhood of one of my favourite Christian authors. Then it was the astonishing, ‘Faith, Hope and…

Not many love the Christmas season more than Sue.

Not many love the Christmas season more than Sue. Our house is adorned with the obligatory Christmas Tree, but also not simply one, but four nativity scenes, as well as assorted reindeer, stars and other decorations. We’ve come into the city to see the lights in Martin Place, and the…
