Sometimes, it takes big changes in order to move forward. A major renovation. A residential move. Lately though, I’ve found that the little upgrades give a sense of progress. Not huge steps. But small changes. At our church, we’ve just modified our projection system so that we’ve got a monitor for the front platform to see the screen (vs having to always turn around). A small change, but it gives us a sense that things are moving forward. At home, I just changed our toilet seat (the one that came with house was GROSS!). Not a big change, but gives a sense that we’re settling and making it home.

Big changes will come inevitably. But they usually happen few and far between (at least that’s been my experience so far). But the little changes, the small modifications help us to feel like we keep moving forward.
