That has been my parting word in conference opportunities, usually talking to church staffers who are wanting to go (or have already gone) multisite, and are looking to us for guidance.
Most of the time, I am talking about control. The biggest learning for anyone who is looking to reproduce anything exponentially (and for us, seeking to Help People Find Their Way Back to God and reproduce leaders and campuses to get us there) is that you have to let go of what you think you have the ability to control.
And boy do I have to learn that one now. It seems like every jar o'stuff that I'm "in charge of" over here at Community is being prodded, kicked, investigated, and lots and lots of changes are being proposed.
The problem is, that it's not me who is recommending the changes. It's other people. And that is my current lesson with control. I need to "Let Go, Luke" and give others the opportunity to shape the conversation, to make the decisions.
Why? Because true reproducing involves trust, and letting go. Otherwise, you're not really letting go - you're pretending. I don't want to be a pretender. I want to let go.
So I guess what I'm saying is, I've got to start taking my own advice.
And by my own advice, of course, I mean Obi-Wan Kenobi's.
