The late Dr. Ken Baileyhas helped us in many ways to look at the death and the resurrection of Jesus in looking at our own and other contempo rary situations/stories that walk us through death to hope in the resurrection and life beyond this life.
Dr. Bailey out of his own living in the Middle East shared a story from the Episcopal Bishop in Tehran that just brings chills when the story is shared of the Bishop’s son. It was a Gabriel Award winning radio spot for the Presbyterian Media Mission back in the early to mid 1980’s. You will hear the familiar voice of Steve Allen who so graciously hosted this series of stories called “Tapestry of Hope.”

From the video series “Christian Leadership in the New Testament” produced by PMM featuring Dr. Bailey and underwritten by the Synod of the Trinity, Ken helps us to reflect on suffering and the meaning it provides in life. It can be individual or collective suffering that helps to get us to a place to learn through struggle and sacrifice as leaders.
Watch Ken Bailey share from his study of scripture and life experiences about God’s love through the struggle and suffering of life.
Shepherd as leader is suppose to be there for the flock. Right? Ken Bailey helps us deal with responsibility in the congregation of a leader who is there to serve. Serve in what ways? What does it mean to suffer? How does suffering help to make us a better leader and closer to what Jesus shared about leadership?
Have a blessed Easter, “Resurrection Sunday!” We live in a Good Friday world with the hope of Easter that opens us up once again to the grace and love of God through his son Jesus Christ.
