This book offers a practical theology of innovation. It provides rich insights mixed with stories of change in establishing young adult formation, nurturing reconciliation, planting community gardens and rural cafes. Built for Change demonstrates that collaborative change is both practical and possible. Innovation is not the mysterious pursuit of what is new and hip by a heroic leader. Rather, innovation grows out of a set of collaborative, practical actions shaped by the Biblical story and Christian traditions of innovation. Innovation requires six strengths: being a servant, gardener, builder, resource manager, fool and parent. This makes innovation a team project, emerging as each discerns their strengths, defines their limits and grows as a differently gifted group. Innovation, therefore offers an invitation to spiritual practices that are deep and wide, inward and outward. It emerges from our followership of Jesus the innovator.
