New Context for Old Challenges By Jon Lewis

A Slightly Different View of New and Old I hear a lot of talk about learning how to live in the “new normal.” Many leaders accept the fact that many of the dramatic impacts on their organizations or ministries simply are not going to go away any time soon.
