They discuss leadership implications, the importance of being a follower, and the importance of pastors in leadership and personal development.

    LESSONS IN LEADERSHIP - S04E13

    LESSONS IN LEADERSHIP - S04E13

    Erwin and Aaron McManus are joined by Lawrence Fudge from Mosaic Seattle to discuss leadership and what it takes to launch a new campus.

    They dive into what lessons they took away from their different experiences, how they grew as leaders, and how they mobilized their teams to tackle the challenges of starting successful movements of Jesus in cities vs. suburbs.

    The topics range from what a leader should look for when building teams, how to respond when things aren’t going well, and how to recognize the strengths and weaknesses in your team members and enable them to thrive.

    MOSAIC HOUSES - S04E12

    MOSAIC HOUSES - S04E12

    Erwin and Aaron McManus talk about Mosaic's newest initiative: Mosaic Houses.

    Mosaic Houses is a new way to keep the global Church resilient, agile, and connected. Aaron breaks down who Mosaic Houses hosts are: people all across the world who call Mosaic their home and want to ‘officially’ become a part of the community and serve under the spiritual authority of Pastor Erwin McManus. Mosaic provides tools and resources for members to build a vibrant community for anyone close or far from Jesus, unifying people around the world around the common mission of Jesus.

    Erwin and Aaron show how the church responds to our changing world, by taking the best of the past and the best of the present to create the best future.

    MEETING IN THE MIDDLE - S04E11

    MEETING IN THE MIDDLE - S04E11

    Erwin and Aaron take us through a new wave of cancel culture, from Disney+ to the Super Bowl. Set against the backdrop of the retracted Bruce Springsteen commercial for Jeep, they discuss who is punished or ‘canceled’ by society for past mistakes, and who is allowed to emerge unscathed.

    How do you move forward to create the future while embracing free speech and the ways free speech will differ in ideology with each person? With an eye-opening look at other countries and cultures’ reparations for their past mistakes, Erwin gives an impassioned appeal for our country to work to meet somewhere in the middle, even amongst our differences.

What I needed

This podcast seems to always have something to offer that I need in the moment. I love scrolling through topics as they come up in my life and finding what is especially relevant. Love this pod!!

Loved Feb 9 and 12 about Free speech and learning from history

Thank you for these perspectives! So many great insights on protecting EVERYONE’S speech, whether you agree with them or not. I also loved the commentary on learning from our history instead of erasing it. I heard Irwin say recently we are more judgmental of others than God is....same could be said of our judgment of people in history who are imperfect.
Thanks so much! 😌😌
