  1. Great points, Kim. Slow, steady progress is far superior to the quick, knee-jerk reactions to the need for change. Many minstries have failed because the leadership saw the need for change but failed to take the people through a process. Instead, they demanded that their people simply embrace the change or leave–and they left.

    I just remember that It took 40 years of desert wanderings for Israel to be ready to enter the Promised Land and another 40 years before they finally settled. Jesus took 3+ years to train his apostles and Paul spent three years in the Arabian desert before he returned.

    Thanks for this reminder, and these very do-able steps to change.

      Thanks Michael – you are so right, and encourage me to be patient even with myself in the process of change.
