i am sitting listening to dave andrews - the description of him by martin wroe made me smile -
I like to think of Dave Andrews as a... weirdy, beardy, proverbially wise-old, kind-old, be-slippered, fire-sided, snoozy, fearless, story-telling, grand-fatherly, rugged, tribal-leader
years ago (1996 i think) i read his book building a better world which had a wonderful strategy for change all about finding space on the edges of organisations and developing something transformational. when there was a crisis at the centre it might be an opportunity for leveraging change on a wider scale. i've never forgotten it. so it was good to hear dave himself still committed to it this afternoon - turns out it is now available as a free guide you can download - an idiot's guide to turning your congregation upside down and inside out. i may have blogged about this before - who knows?... but better twice than never.
