In this episode of Imagining Abundance series of LF Town Halls, we welcomed Dr. Dave Odom. Dave is the Executive Director of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School where he launched Faith & Leadership, a valuable learning resource for Christian leaders and their institutions. We continued our conversation about abundance and how faith based leaders can better talk about the economics of their organizations.

Carlos Huerta, Associate Director of The Center For Community Transformation at Fresno Pacific University shared about the work they are doing in social enterprise, entrepreneurship, and finance and with churches making transformative impact in communities around Fresno.

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.
