We’re considering the fifth principle of Leadership Courage: Don’t “push on the rope:” the unmotivated are invulnerable to insight.

And, the motivated arevulnerable to insight.

What might occur if you got really good at provoking your parishioners’ hunger for God’s Word?

What if, this coming year, you devoted yourself to provoking their hunger for maturity?

What if you saw to it that your parish became a more uncomfortableplace to stay spiritually and emotionally immature?

You might get to reinvent yourself in the process. You would have the opportunity to trust Jesus in ways you haven’t in a long time. You could trade familiar patterns and skills for fresh, provocative, people-changing ones.

Why would you do that?
