Message From Our Board President
December and January can quite literally be dark times as the hours of sunlight get shorter and shorter until the 21st, when we turn our corner into the light. Our SFUU solstice service will be Thursday, December 20, at 5:00pm. As I shine my own light on the year and the future here at SFUU, my memories took me to a board training we did last spring. The Pacific Western Region shared from Peter Steinke’s “7 Habits of Health-Promoting Leaders”. The reason I share this is that we are all spiritual leaders of our own paths and in community with others along their path. I align with several different aspects, and some I need to work on. As we go forth may we be supported by the web of this community and reach out to others, as well as allow for our own challenges to spur us into community for the love and support we share. Sometimes a conversation is all that is needed. Until we meet again, blessed be.
A Health-promoting leader:
Provides guidance and inspiration
Practices “Big Picture” remembering
Focuses on Strengths
Celebrates resources and opens the future
Manages conflicts through discovery and affirmation of the largest common values
Challenges Self and Others
Tolerates pain of growth in self and others
Practices the art collaboration and empowerment
Practices anticipatory leadership
