People not quick to change
With seasonal changes, I think of people changes. One of my favorite light-bulb questions is “How many church members does it take to change a light bulb?” The answer comes quickly: “CHANGE?!!”
Pastors quite naturally want to change the hearts and minds of their congregations. I used to think that change could be accomplished with one or two powerful messages – well, maybe three or four. But then I took some communication courses in attitude change, persuasion and social change. Many of these principles, in my opinion, are verified in scripture.
