How did we get here? We tend to ask this when…
…compromise results in consequences greater than expected.
…plans result in failure.
…chaos emerges within an organization.
…we are unprepared for tragedy.
When we find ourselves at a place we did not intend, desire, or plan for, we wonder, “How did I get here?”
Perhaps we need to ask, “What will we do now?”
The journey that brought us here is important, but it is more important to know what we do from this point.
As spiritual leaders, we must guide those who find themselves in difficult circumstances to a better place of hope.
