I once heard a story of a pastor in in a very staunch and rigid church in Europe somewhere that wanted to move the church piano from the left side of the stage to the right (have no idea why) but he knew the congregation would not except such a huge change so he moved it over 1 inch every week until it was on the the other side and no one noticed.
Are you slowly being moved? I know I've been, and I am trying to make my way back, by wearing a burnt hay bale on my head ........ only during the week.
Check out The Story of Cosmetics. The Story of Stuff is good too. I love these videos, they are made so that all of us can understand them.
Here is a story on that shows what can happen when we don't pay attention and compromise way too much. I'm using the word compromise because I just can't seem to find a word that explains what we have done to end up here. If you have a better word let me know.
