The book is organized into two sections. Part one depicts six disciplines that shape the interior life of missional leaders as individuals, while part two offers the same number for organizations. The symmetry reflects a belief that organizations are fundamentally are spiritual reflecting the leaders’ spiritual life.
The two chapters which impressed me the most were Humility, from Part One - Personal Disciplines & Sacrifice, from Part Two - Organizational Disciplines.
Humility is, like John the Baptist, knowing who you are and who you are not. One has to convince himself that he is not omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent. Using the following three phrases helps convince us: I do not know, I am sorry, and I need you.
