Should I Start a [You Name It] Movement?

Here’s some advice from Dallas Willard on that:

“I’m not entirely against starting a movement but most movements don’t amount to very much, frankly. On the other hand, people who know how to stand and stand in the Spirit of Christ change people all around them. They never fail. They never fail. When you have that, it will never fail to change people all around you.”

Dallas Willard, “How To Be In the World But Not of It,” 1999

Willard, it should be remembered, did not start a movement.  He was, however, swept up in a couple, usually not by his will and with very paltry results.
