This is a painting by the artist Magritte which I was first introduced to by Stuart Murray Williams and which I now steal regularly!  It is a picture that all leaders would find worth pondering.  Here are some questions to help you reflect on your own role as a prophetic, entrepreneurial or creative leader:

  • What is the artist doing?
  • What does the egg represent for you – a person, a community, an initiative,  a congregation, a vision, a network or something else?
  • What is your role as the artist?
  • What if you are the egg?  Who is the artist – a parent, a mentor, a friend, someone who believes in you… God?
  • Who has seen and drawn out your potential?
  • Is there more to be realised?

Ponder…reflect…give thanks…imagine…pray…do something…
