The Remarkable Shape of God’s Grace in Lewiston & Portland, Maine

Leadership Foundations

A group of LF staff recently had the great opportunity to visit our local Leadership Foundation in Maine, The Root Cellar for its LF accreditation visit. With deep roots that stretch back to 1984, The Root Cellar is driving the Wheel of Change in some remarkable ways in both Lewiston and Portland, ME. 

With old New England mill and port town history, these cities have changed a great deal in the past decades, African refugees and asylum seekers becoming a key and vital part of these urban communities.

The Root Cellar has answered the call of service, and has been serving these cities in remarkable ways.

Well done The Root Cellar, in loving your cities well!

What book, movie, quote, or tv show has most shaped your understanding of leadership or the city?   

A quote that has shaped my understanding of leadership and the city is, “Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief. Do justly now, love mercy now, walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.”

While the amount of work there is to do to transform cities is great, this quote reminds me that we are freed from having to complete it all, though our obligation to continue remains. We may never see a huge transformation in our lifetime. The work stretches far beyond us. However, this does not make our acts of faithfulness in the day to day less significant, no matter how small they may seem.
