Sunday, February 21 at 11:00 a.m. - THE COURAGE TO LOSE - When I look despairingly at some leaders—whether in politics or business, labour or other public institutions—I am heartened to remember that the behaviours and attitudes that most trouble me have been around since the beginning of history. More than a century ago, Brooke Herford pointed out that the greatest shortcoming among political leaders was that they “seldom have the courage to be defeated.” Herford believed that in the “courage for present failure and defeat lies the surest pledge of ultimate victory!” Maybe, maybe not—but how we win or lose is more important than success itself. Rev. Stefan Jonasson will preach.
