How do church leaders help people deal with challenges?
from Church Central
How do church leaders help people deal with challenges? Horticulturalists found that trees planted in more-receptive peat and then staked to prevent wind stress tend to grow their roots within the peat rather than extend them into the ground. In fact, trees do better when planted in regular soil without stakes to help them stand up. They are forced to deal with moderate wind stress and actually develop stronger root systems and trunks. Part of your job at church is to frame the challenges at hand for those you lead. As changes occur in the church and the world, you can present them as opportunities for growth and for new possibility. You can stimulate people to put out new shoots of growth, new roots into the new soil where you find yourself planted.
