William Booth, the Salvation Army’s self styled General, who stood in a point of history when suffering was both overwhelming and unnecessary, saw the world in need of radical change Like Petrarch some 400 years before him, Booth was adamant he would make a difference. Together with his wife Catherine, their eight children and the support of close friends, William Booth set out to bring salvation to the lives of the hopelessly poor, the destitute, the homeless and the hungry.

Glasses / July 31, 2017

A veteran educator in the field of leadership development, June Gunter, Ed.D., was not a very troubling trend. According to Gunter, the word "lead" has become the latest four-letter word. Being in the field of leadership development for the past 20 years she observed a growing pattern where the people with the character to lead were saying no to the job. When Gunter asked former leaders why they had chosen to leave leadership positions that they said it was because the job was consuming, thankless, and not worth the sacrifices they had to make in their personal and family lives. It was hard for her to keep motivating them to lead. Because of Gunter's own experience, she agreed with them. Compelled to find a new source of hope for herself and her clients, Gunter set out on a mission to find a new model of leadership that would re-inspire people to become the leaders their communities desire. Much to her surprise, she found this new model of leadership on the back of a horse. In 2004, Gunter founded an organization named TeachingHorse that provides experiential learning and leadership development with horses. Working with horses, leaders learn how to remain calm…

Glasses / July 29, 2017

As our annual celebrations of gay pride approach, you might give some thought to what pride means to you. I recently participated in a group meeting of gay professionals who asked if there even was such a thing as gay pride, and if so, what was it? Though we celebrate pride in group festivals and parades, what pride means to each person is often very personal. In 2011, I toured the Midwest as a gay rock and roll solo artist. I performed at six pride festivals in five weeks. Just me, my electric guitar and backing tracks, and high energy rock and roll songs I had written and collected about pride, self-esteem, fun and hot men. It is reputed that Led Zeppelin got their name after being told their sound would go over like a lead balloon. In that sense, I had the delivery down pat because that was exactly how my sets went down. Audiences, to quote Iron Maiden, ran to the hills. I had expected a reaction like this after years of observing bar after bar, festival after festival, showcase the latest in lip-synching drag performers, and DJ’s mixing it up in 4/4 time. More power to them,…
