Remember Newton’s first two laws of motion? Here’s a refresher…
First law: Every object continues in its state of rest, or of uniform motion in a straight line unless compelled to change that state by external forces acted upon it.
Second law: The acceleration (a) of a body is parallel and directly proportional to the net force (F) acting on the body, is in the direction of the net force, and is inversely proportional to the mass (m) of the body.
In other words, things that are sitting still don’t move unless something pushes them, pulls them, or otherwise compels them by force…including churches.
If you are a pastor begin by asking yourself the following question and then pose the question to your leadership team.
What will you/we need to do different in 2016 in order to see something different than what you/we saw in 2015?
