Four hundred years later the story St. Vincent’s sermon at Chattilon is still being told. But it is a story with even wider implications. The story of that sermon at Chatillon is the foundation story for what we call today systemic change.
Generations have done the same thing in spite of the fact there was no longer any necessity for doing it that way. It was just “the way I have always done it.”
Are we too close to those we serve that we are near-sighted? There systemic are change issues that a clear-sighted servant/shepherd needs to be alert to.
