How Does Change Happen Within An Individual?

These are some brief notes from a Renovare Retreat I attended in October. I thought that they'd be helpful for you.

Change happens through:

1. Pain and Suffering - discomfort propels people to seek change.
2. A Compelling Vision - a vision for a different reality of life.

* It is possible for us to be working against the process that God is initiating in order to bring about change-- change in our lives and in the lives of others.

* Jesus' parables created discomfort and disequilibrium to provoke change.

assuming that you are right, and i think you are, one can't help but question why Western believers often seek out comfortably-constructed living spaces and fashion homogeneous sub-cultures in an attempt to avoid number [1].
