Reversing decisions

a Biblical thought...
Put your mind on your life with God. The way to life—to God!—is vigorous and requires your total attention. (Luke 13:23)

a Book thought...
Soldiers cannot only belong; they are either fighting or maintaining readiness for battle-otherwise, they are not really soldiers. (p55 Needham)
a Dave thought...
PUBLIC Transport Minister Lynne Kosky will today bow to anger from cyclists and reverse a controversial plan to ban bikes on trains during rush hours. Chris Star, who helped form lobby group Bin the Bike Ban last month, said she was relieved the ban had been dropped.
"It created a lot of anger because we saw it as a denial of service. And it was done at such short notice and without consultation," she said.

As I have a few friends in my cycling group who were impacted by the ban I have been watching this issue with interest over the last few months. It seemed so against a society that wants to decrease cars, and encourage environmentally friendly transport. Well common sense has prevailed and some are now admitting it was done at such short notice and without consultation.

It is often the same in our churches, or organisation when we rush into decisions or plans and a few months later we know the wrong decision was made, but it is having the courage to reverse a decision and admit we were wrong that shows a truly humble leader. So well done Lynne - you have my respect.

Just a thought.
