Get comfortable saying: “I was wrong”.
The stereotype of you and me, is that we are blinded by our arrogance.
The stereotype that we have about those more veteran pastors is that they are set in their ways and afraid to change.
Being wrong really hurts our ego, but when we protect our ego we cause real damage. See our mistakes aren’t that big of a deal.
The blame passing.
When we don’t own up to the mistakes that’s when real problems emerge. Very rarely does something “just work itself out” and “riding it out” never really gets you anywhere.
Those mistakes you are afraid to own up to, the mistakes you are embarrassed to claim; no one else will remember them in a month. No one else cares about this like you do.
You do have options. You can make changes.
It is called leadership.
