and Listening?

Writing in the July 2001 edition of the magazine Quadrant, Eddie Gibbs, an Anglican priest, and for many years Profes­sor of Church Growth at the USA’s Fuller Theological Semi­nary, sums things up like this:

We now have a generation of leaders who do not know how to lead within a con text of rapid and chaotic change. We were trained to map read on well-marked roads, not navigate on stormy seas. I believe the changes are significant and irreversible – while tomorrow continues to arrive ahead of schedule, yesterday can never be revisited.
