GLG - Unpredictable Change

Paul summarized it like this: "The righteous will live by faith" Rom 1:17B. We could easily re-translate this to "the righteous thrive in the midst of unpredictable change." - Erwin McManus, An Unstoppable Force
[This quote is from the chapter called Change Theology, which I believe every ministry leader should read.]
If you aspire to be a global leader, be prepared to carve a future in the midst of a great amount of change. But you've probably already got a sense that the world around you is moving at a dizzying pace. If you don't know this already - it's going to move faster. And global leaders - as challenging as it is - embrace this chaos; get used to making plan B, C and D; and empower those they serve with to roll with it. In many senses, that's when we need leaders the most - when we're still committed to the core but we need help with interpreting everything else around us.

I'm posting some writing from a global student leadership guidebook that I'm working on. Let me know if you are interested in the progress of this project.
