"Never Waste a Crisis"
Rev. Stephen Kendrick
Stephen writes, "There is a new movie about politics coming out later in the month called, I believe, 'My Business is Crisis,"--and it echoes Ralm Emanuel's (Obama's first Chief of Staff) favorite saying, "Never waste a crisis." He believed that change only happens in times of chaos and duress, and that we seldom embrace change until we are forced to by changing circumstances. I have come to believe this is largely true in our personal lives as well. I don't wish times of crisis on anyone (including me), but when they arrive, as they inevitably will, we need to grow from them, not be submerged and flattened by them. See you in church!"
