What True Leadership Looks Like: ‘Walking With The Wind’ By Rep. John Lewis

“I had problems with the church. On the one hand, I was absolutely committed to my faith , to the Lord, to the stories and lessons I read in the Bible — beautiful stories and deep, deep lessons. On the other hand, I was torn and confused, full of questions about why so many people treated one another so cruelly sometimes, often in the name of the same Bible I was reading. That kind f question didn’t curb my desire to become a minister. In fact, it increased it. Seeing what the Reverend King was doing showed me there were more ways to be a minister than the ones I had seen in my own church.”
