Today, we talk with Josh Bolluyt and Terry Bruinsma about their experience leading the Spirit Lake High School and Middle School through a period of unprecedented uncertainty and change. They reflect upon the previous year’s challenges and successes and lift out some of the lessons that they will carry forward into the future. This conversation is an excellent reminder that all leadership success is built upon hard work and difficult choices, which becomes all the more challenging when those choices need to be made with limited information.
For the season of Lent, our Wednesday podcast will feature interviews with individuals who reflect upon the struggles, triumphs, and lessons learned throughout 2020. Though everyone’s experience of the pandemic and its ensuing struggles are unique, it has become quickly apparent how many of these challenges we have shared and how we can stand to learn much from each other.
In addition, during Lent, be sure to tune back in on Sunday evenings for our “normal” Pastor Talk Podcast releases when Clint and Michael discuss a variety of the lessons that they have learned throughout this season. This coming week, the two pastors will reflect on our human temptation to simplify complex realities into simple, binary issues.
