In the book, The Future of Competition, the authors state, “Most managers are reluctant to let go of familiar practices and tools—their zones of comfort.” This exemplifies many church leaders. We won’t let go of familiar practices. We continue to cling to our zones of comfort. We continue to see church as one place at one time. We refuse to look beyond the borders of the existing church property. We continue to hold onto our resources rather than invest them in the Kingdom. We continue to minister under the delusion that a non-multiplying paradigm can meet the diverse needs of the 21st Century.
Where are your zones of comfort? What delusion do you labor under? Are you ready for a paradigm shift? If not, why?
