These thoughts of Friedman go hand in hand wiht the Ronald Heifetz book “The Practice of Adaptive Leadership”. It is not an easy read, but it does shed light on why communities cannot change, whether they be in church, in business, or in families. Also, this same kind of message can be found in “One Families Story” put out by the Bowen Study. Thanks for bringing this video to my attention
Thanks, Landon. In case anyone is interested, here’s a little about Jonathan Camp, creator of this video.
At least as far as I can tell, this is the guy! (Of course I had to track him down–in case he might “need” to write a book!)
The new connection for me after seeing this helpful precis of Freidman’s work is to think about how much denominational schism (e.g. New Reformed Bodies) is like the inability to self-differentiate. If they could take a well-defined stand while remaining in contact with the rest of us, maybe it would be a healthy thing.
