I’m pleased to share this guest post from Adam Barlow-Thompson, a good friend and colleague. I have great respect for Adam as a PCM and LOD trainer, minister, husband, an innovator and friend. I always appreciate his wisdom and down-to-earth perspective. When he shared this story with me at a recent training we were co-facilitating, I asked if I could share it with my audience.
When I first started in ministry a mentor asked me a cryptic question.
“How do you wring out your sponge?”
My response: “Huh?”
He went on.
