Management by the Way of Love

The Harvard Business Review is not a venue one normally associates with spiritual matters or the Episcopal Church. But HBR has published an interview in its May-June issue with Presiding Bishop Michael Curry — the chief executive officer of an organization associated with 1.9 million believers, and overseeing an annual budget of more than $40 million.
I’ve had people ask whether the way of love is a realistic approach to life. If I’m a CEO, or a member of Congress, can I really build a life around love? Can I if I’m a prosecutor and I see the worst of human beings? My response is: If you think love is a sentiment, no. But if you understand that love is a commitment, the answer is yes.
