Change is a constant. In life, we can expect change. Change occurs as part of the human life cycle and it happens as part of the organizational life cycle as well. If change is inevitable, why do so many organizations, including churches, struggle to change? Describe an organization you are aware of that could not change and what impact that inability to change had on the organization.
