Before I leave for a retreat, I thought I'd post this video, from the National Leadership Roundtable on Church Management, on the topic of joy during times of adversity. The talk was at their annual meeting, this June, at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, and--weirdly for me--in full view of my sophomore dorm. Michael O'Loughlin, one of our newest bloggers, is at the top of the piece. Hope you enjoy it. The complete set of videos of the addresses from this year's conference (including an excellent talk by John Allen, in which he provides an astute overview of the future of the church, and demonstrates an almost preternatural command of data) is on their site here.
