Last October the Prince and Princess of Wales allowed TV cameras into their home to film them as a normal couple with their two children. During the interview Prince Charles described his job in these terms: "It, more than anything else, is a way of life. It's more than a job. It's a complete, 24-hour-a-day business, really."
Leadership in any organization&md;whether in the local church or in some other Christian activity&md;is never just a job. It is always a way of life, demanding from those who would be leaders a 24-hour-a-day commitment. The leader, in a sense, must always be on the job, deciding, directing and developing the work that has been entrusted to him while at the same time encouraging those in the work.
