The church moves at glacial speed

DRF—This is so unfair to glaciers! Churches can move slower than sheets of ice. This is especially true when hiring staff or implementing changes. Weeks and months can pass and nothing happens. Then, like a glacier calving an iceberg, there is a flurry of action. With an announcing ‘boom,’ everything seems to happen at once. A better way is to set an orderly process of casting vision, planning, communication and process-implementation.

Sunday is for Aphorisms

‘Aphorism’ from the Greek ἀφορισμός—a delimitation, distinction, definition. A terse saying, laconic and in memorable form, expressing a general truth or principle; an astute observation.
