So, I ceased the process rhetoric for a while via blog post but I've never stopped believing in the value of process or the role it plays in shaping people.
Today, I simply want to share a thought, maybe it'll encourage you, perhaps it'll instruct you, or it just may serve as a reminder...
Here's the thought -
"The process, not the destination, brings definition"
Said another way:
- Perhaps you are a church planter - the process that will define you, not the title or the "planted church" - after all, the planted church will be an extension of who you are, not what you do
- Perhaps you are going to write a book - the process will define you, not the paperback - after all, words come to life when they come from life
- Perhaps you are a great parent - the process will define you, not the accolades. After all, the day-in/day-out of relationship, tension, friction, cooperation, communication bring definition
