The Lone Nut
Thanks to Teacher Tom , I stumbled across this awesome TED talk that is ostensibly about leadership--yet, it's central point is the essentiality of giving over power and the importance of followers. I think it serves as a pretty awesome illustration of the role played by the disciples in the early church--and how church growth may (or may not!) succeed.
"It was the first follower that transformed a lone nut into a leader...the best way to make a movement if you really care is to courageously follow and show others how to follow."
