Away with Words: In Pursuit of Authenticity: January 2005

genxcel.blogspot.com [cached]

Simultaneously, we welcomed back to the fold (after completing Nyack College) returning hero and Xcel cofounder Luis Velez to replace her.Only Luis wasn't the right man for the position.

It turns out Luis made a decision to return to Xcel even though part of him believed the timing was off for him to return to the City, out of his loyalty to the organization and children we serve.This internal conflict meant that the first couple days last week were emotionally exhausting.Luis' dilemma: do what's right and pursue the call of God on his life or stay in a position that he prematurely accepted.How to proceed?
Thankfully, Luis pursued authentic comunity.
