Leaders and Storytelling

God calls leaders to tell a story of redemption through their lives as they lead others in the redeeming story of God.  Leaders are primarily storytellers and story makers; and troubled people are called to be leaders because they create and tell compelling stories.  Sane, reasonable, play-it-safe people are not sufficiently engaged in life to generate great stories.  Instead, they sit back and wait for a leader-storyteller to come along and get them caught up in a life worth living.
