We think of God as the great transformer, but in what ways do we transform ourselves and our world? Is God the only force of transformation in our lives? I have asked for my life to change and then waited and waited. It finally dawned on me that nothing was going to happen until I did something. We may say that God brings about change in the world or the church or the family or a person. But it is not until we are joint change agents that something is going to happen. Once we decide on a course of personal or communal action, we have a supporting agent in our actions. We can not leave all actions of change up to God.
