If you were trying to get somewhere important, you wouldn’t drag a cow along.
Yet “sacred cows” anchor many church leaders to the past or present, sabotaging vision and action.
Maybe it’s a worship style the church cannot seem to move past. It might be a ministry that has far outlived its effectiveness. It could even be an old way of thinking that still influences every decision.
Whatever your sacred cow may be, I’m sure you’ve felt it holding you back. I’m sure it’s made you feel stuck.
Our relationship with sacred cows is in no way a new one.
