Healthy Churches, Led by Healthy Leaders, Changing the World

I’ll never forget my dad helping me to learn to ride a bike. He would help me balance myself, but eventually, I would go around and around and flop over. That’s when he used a phrase that I have often heard in my life. He said, “Timmy, your problem is that you are not building up a head of steam. Get a head of steam and your balance will get better.” It sounded like wise advice, but I didn’t have a clue as to what that meant. He explained, “A head of steam is what it takes to get those old steam trains rollin’.” Later I realized that what my dad was talking about was momentum.

Whether it’s a snowball rolling down a snow-covered mountain or a train moving down a track, momentum is a self-perpetuating, potent influence. Athletes and sports fans know this and so do effective organizations. Without a “head of steam,” churches and organizations often languish and become stagnant.

Let’s do it!” There are a few who say, “No,” and can never be convinced otherwise. Most say “No,” initially out of skepticism, but can be convinced to pursue the new and different future. So, how do you convince them? How do you turn skeptics into willing pursuers of the dream? Here’s how.  Read more!
