Healthy Church #4 Faces the cost of change and growth

Change in any sphere can be difficult, being able to face hard and painful truths within a church particularly can be costly. The bullet points pretty much speak for themselves. 

While embracing the past, a healthy church dares to take on new ways of doing things, it admits when things are not working, reflects and learns. Facing the cost of change and growth rather than resisting change and fearing failure is a mark of health that needs to be nurtured at all levels as the church responds to challenges and opportunities.
