John S. Spong: "I am not sure Christianity would have survived for 2000 years had it not been institutionalized. I am not sure if it will survive the next 100 years because it is institutionalized."

“People want change but not too much change. Finding that balance is tricky for every politician.”Eleanor CliftNewsweek
slide7

“…our culture is in the midst of rapid, extensive transformation at every level. We are moving through a period of volatile, discontinuous change. Change is always happening; that’s not the issue.”

god s design
God’s Design:

Creation: Genesis 1: 1-25

The Law: Leviticus 25

A Time for everything: Eccl. 3:1-15

Jesus: The Sabbath (Mark 2:23-28)

slide9

“Smart individuals… fail to create sufficient urgency at the beginning of a business transformation for many different but interrelated reasons. They overestimate how much they can force big changes on an organization…

slide10

They underestimate how hard it is to drive people out of their comfort zones. They don’t recognize how their own actions can inadvertently reinforce the status quo. They lack patience: ‘Enough with the preliminaries, let’s get on with it.’”(Kotter 1996, 5)

slide11

Kotter uses the example of Adrien:- visionary who sees multiple problems ahead for his company- institutes 12 new changes- each initiative fails

slide12

“And, I would also add, you can’t put a group of people together and constantly allow changes to their group, thereby interrupting their momentum, and expect them to become intimate allies.”

Andy Stanley:

how do you know your people are not ready for another change
How do you know your people are not ready for another change?

1. When there is no clear completion or plan for completion of the last change.

2. When apathy toward new initiatives becomes the norm instead of the exception.

3. When there is no unity in the leadership.

How do you know your people are not ready for another change?

5. When the changes “needed” overridethe Gospel being presented and spiritual needs being met.

4. When there has been “no time” for prayer, consensus-building, or clearly planned changes.
