Leading A Church Through Difficult Times: A Lesson From “The Most Bombed Hotel In The World”
After almost 2,000 years of attacks from without and within, the fact that the church continues to not just survive, but thrive is nothing short of a miracle.

What was its greatest weakness is today its greatest accomplishment.

The church is called to do no less.

If a hotel in downtown Belfast can keep a standing order for windows so that their customer service never lags, despite actual bombs being lobbed at them, we in the church can do no less.

We can’t let the constant frustration of spiritual, emotional, personal or financial attacks cause us to take our eyes off the prize.

We can’t let the constant frustration of spiritual, emotional, personal or financial attacks cause us to take our eyes off the prize.

Our mandate is clear. Our calling is irrevocable. Our mission is the greatest that has ever been given.

Sweep up the debris and carry on.
