Nonprofit Board Challenge

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has introduced to the ALS board a challenge: more money that it dreamed of. Now, the board must, in accordance with its fiduciary duty of care, determine by policy or strategy, what it must do with its newfound wealth.

I believe that the Wall Street Journal did a fine job describing the choices unexpected prosperity introduces.

As far as challenges go, too much cash is a good one to have.…

Coping With Cancer: Learn What Works For Each Of Us

When we go to the doctor and get a diagnosis of cancer we often panic; our mind sometimes go into over-drive and conjures up the worst case scenarios.  First, it is important to know that millions of people survive cancer in the long-term and have good quality of life after treatment.  Yes, treatment is sometimes debilitating, but not always.

Neighborhoods: What is Working

How to Connect Neighborhood Churches to Your Local Community

Transcription of John and Peter's February 20, 2018 conversation with Paul Sparks, a leading voice in the growing Parish Movement. Paul has worked in more than 1,000 neighborhoods around the world to identify, connect, and support groups that want to have their neighborhoods flourish. In their conversation Paul talked about his own and his colleagues' work with local churches, academic institutions, and community organizations in the United States and abroad and offered ideas on how to translate their experiences into their listeners' own community-building work.
