A LEADER’S GREATEST FOE by Frank Marangos, D.Min., Ed.D., FCEP “Well, here’s another nice mess you’ve gotten me into!” Oliver Hardy When a leader is asked who or what gives them the most trouble, how do they usually answer?

Or is their anger directed towards the disgruntled employee, parishioner, or board member? The classic catch phrase cited above was first uttered by Oliver Hardy to Stan Laurel in their 1930 film Another Fine…

I say Jason and the Argonauts is the greatest film ever made.” – Tom Hanks On Saturday, February 23rd, a preacher named Mindar gave an historic speech on the Heart Sutra, a key scripture in Buddhist teaching that offers a path to “overcome all fear, destroy all wrong perceptions, and realize perfect nirvana.” The inspiring sermon was delivered in the 400-year-old Kodaiji Temple in the Japanese city of Kyoto.

Source: The National Herald By Antonis H. Diamataris The issue of leadership is one of the most discussed issues of our time because, as it is often said, there is a void of great leaders in today’s tumultuous world.
