Election special! November 3, 2008Posted by Andrew Killick (Publishing Manager) in 3. Castle Books, Faith Politics & Servant Leadership.

This weekend is an election double-header. Here in New Zealand we will cast our votes and have our say about who we want to lead our country for the next three years. Meanwhile, Americans will be doing the same in the United States.
But when all is said and done and the rhetoric and spin has died down, what kind of people do we really want running the country? The sort that simply fight for their own survival, protecting their parliamentary jobs and advancing their own ambition (or the ambition of those that fund them)? Or the type that have a genuine calling to serve their country and their people; who have their priorities in order; who know what’s really important?
Several years ago, Castle published a book called Faith, Politics and Servant Leadership by Hon Graeme Lee, former Minister of Internal Affairs in the Bolger government and founder of the Christian Democrat Party (which later evolved into United Future).
This book is a fascinating blend of autobiography, in which Graeme relates some of his experiences in parliament, and sound advice about a Christian involvement in politics. The key thing that Graeme communicates in the book is the importance of servant leadership, as modelled by Jesus. In essence you could say this is all about how to lead by serving and serve by leading.
I know this book has already found its way into the hands of some influential people in New Zealand. But let’s hope and pray that when the shape of parliament is revealed in a few days time, we have people with the kind of heart that Graeme Lee writes about, sitting in the seats around the debating chamber.
