Speed of Trust

About 40 pastors and ministry leaders from different denominations, races, and locations gathered to pray and strategize on how to better collaborate in bringing Christ to our city. During the retreat a new phrase kept surfacing to guide us.
The phrase was “The Speed of Trust.” With so many people from diverse backgrounds, and many who didn’t know each other, it became obvious that building trust was critical.
We determined not to advance agendas until we had adequately built trust with each other. This pearl of wisdom helped us avoid missteps.
Proverbs 27:6 teaches, “Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses.
Building collaboration is fragile work. It’s much easier with friends, rather than competitors. Try advancing your relationships at the speed of trust.
