"Up and At Them"

In the Simpsons TV show they decided to do a movie based on the comic book "Radioactive Man" in which the hero's catch phrase is "Up and atom." Unfortunately, the actor hired to portray the hero cannot understand the pun and so continues to say: "Up and at them!" Even work with a vocal coach does little to solve the issue.

Sometimes we get into ruts. Sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees. Sometimes it's useful to get some perspective. This summer my wife and I are volunteering on an organic farm in Ireland. We are pretty much completely outside our normal life. I may post less often over the summer, and my posts may be a bit more tangential, but trust that this is all for the purpose of being a better preacher. Sometimes distance is a catalyst for change.

What helps you get distance from your ruts? How do you foment change?
