Leadership and "Authenticity"

In three days, my last post became my highest visited post of all time. This topic has really struck a nerve. I've been asked about it by a reporter working on a story on pastors and failure, I've had others ask to reprint it, and it received 600 visitors on the day I posted it. Wow.

Rhett Smith continues the conversation today, with a post entitled "Being Authentic Doesn't Mean Bleeding All Over the Congregation."  Rhett is a marriage and family therapist and former college pastor. This is just a brilliant post, and I wish he had written it about 10 years ago.

I've told you I have a forthcoming article on why pastors need therapy, and I'll let you know where it ends up.

Please read Rhett's article and pass it on!
