“Change is inevitable. Progress is optional.” Tony Robbins World Gospel Mission has experienced a fair amount of change in its history. Change is rarely easy, but the progress makes it worth it. This issue of The Call will mark the last time that President Harriman will write to us from the President’s Perspective. As we anticipate a leadership transition for the organization on July 31, the theme of transition seemed appropriate.
Change and transition are part of life. We have all experienced it in some form or another. Sometimes we handle it better than others, but, undoubtedly, transition evokes emotion.

As you read about these issues, think about how you can best support, encourage, and love someone who is in your sphere of influence and going through transition. The action items listed at the end of each article will offer practical helps for loving you neighbor.
