Strong and Weak: Embracing a Life of Love, Risk and True Flourishing
by Andy Crouch
True flourishing travels down an unexpected path – being both strong and weak. We see this in the best leaders, people who use their authority for the benefit of others, while also showing extraordinary willingness to face and embrace suffering. Rather than being opposites, strength and weakness are actually meant to be combined in every human life and community. If you want to become the kind of person with the strength to be compassionate and generous, whose influence leads to healthy communities, this book is for you.
Resources for Integrating Aboriginal Ways of Knowing and Learning
This is a site to bookmark for researching BC-specific resources, particularly for elementary grades, to use with BC’s redesigned curriculum which is grounded in current child development and learning theories research including a large body of research that supports the inclusion of Aboriginal content for all students. To assist with this, ERAC is continuously identifying and evaluating aboriginal resources that you can access from this site.
Development and Leadership Coaching
Use this site to learn more about Zach Clark’s approach to development and leadership. He says, “Your to-do list is long, the demands on your time overwhelming, and the pressures just keep coming. Every day you push forward, but deep down you wonder if you’ll get the needed results. Sometimes you can feel drowned by the reality of what it takes to make progress. You don’t need more ideas. You need to know how to go from where you are to where you need to be.”
