In this episode, I talk with Jim Wideman about the importance of thinking differently. We all have ways of doing ministry that have become routine–typically because we are busy and want to be able to focus on people, as God has called us to do. But, we still need to make time to pray, lean into the wisdom of others, ask questions, and understand the new things God is calling us to in each season. Jim shares the importance of making the time to rethink your ministry, practical tips for doing that, and his own personal experience.
