New from Benetvision: The Legacy of Leadership by Joan Chittister

Prayer for Leadership
Give us, O God,
leaders whose hearts are large enough
to match the breadth of our own souls
and give us souls strong enough
to follow leaders of vision and wisdom.

In seeking a leader, let us seek
more than development for ourselves—
though development we hope for,
more than security for our own land—
though security we need,
more than satisfaction for our wants—
though many things we desire.

Give us the hearts to choose the leader
who will work with other leaders
to bring safety
to the whole world….

—from A Prayer for Leadership by Joan Chittister

In time for national elections, “The Legacy of Leadership: a Gift for Generations to Come” by Joan Chittister is now available in a pamphlet format that includes Sister Joan’s entire “A Prayer for Leadership” along with short reflections on the nature of leadership itself.

Includes Talking points on Leadership so that you can bring a deeper dimension to your conversations about the election—conversations with your family, co-workers, and friends as well as online conversations via Facebook, comments you make to blog posts and Tweets you send.

The format is easily accessible and slim enough to carry in a purse or pocket or keep by your bedside. Ideal for group prayer and discussion or personal prayer and reflection.

The Legacy of Leadership is available from Benetvision. Click here for more information and to order.
