What if the public meeting didn’t have a speech? My friend Steve recently thought it was a good idea to think about that. That question came up last week again when we were refreshing our PM Plan, too. It helped me ponder the question and actually offer a response. For the longest time, sermons reminded me of the Soviet propagandists and the Orwellian dystopian leaders who were broadcasted all over the streets and TVs. I really didn’t know why I would give one. But the thing I learned is that you have to want to lead, and leading is sometimes about impacting people. Sometimes speaking to someone is the best way to impact them. But you’ve got to believe you have the stuff to be an impacter.
