Deep Change

Robert Quinn, in his book Deep Change (1996, Jossey-Bass), writes: “Deep change differs from incremental change in that it requires new ways of thinking and behaving. It is change that is major in scope, discontinuous with the past and generally irreversible. The deep change effort distorts existing patterns of action and involves taking risks. Deep change means surrendering control.” Quinn writes from a business perspective but I am led to the conviction that what he talks about is actually a spiritual question. Deep change happens as we become fully exposed to God and are led by the Holy Spirit to fully examine our life. As we are led by the Spirit to release all those things that hold us back we are led into a process of dying and rising that brings the freedom promised in the Scriptures.
