Justin Buzzard:

Run to the tension.

I’ve been teaching our leaders to “run to the tension” as they lead Neighborhood Groups/lead people in our church.

When conflict, tension, and difficulty shows up, run to it. Face it. Deal with it. Lead through it now, not later.

Our instinct is to ignore tension, but ignoring conflict now will only make for a bigger and messier conflict three months from now.

Run to the tension.
