How can you address your own emotions and those of your team during times of crisis?
Suddenly, an unexpected crisis hits, and you’re a leader. In addition to navigating the havoc it may wreak on your personal life, people are turning to you for answers. What should you do? Where should you start? Thankfully, you are not alone in this moment. Nor are you the first follower of God to be a leader in a time of crisis! The Old Testament example of Nehemiah provides a striking and hopeful example for us to follow.
