Event vs. Process: The Key to Life Change

Growing Leaders produced a Mac vs. PC parody a few years ago that still speaks clearly to the relationship between the many "programs" that we utilize in our society. It speaks to the relationship between a event in our lives, and the process that we use to solidify the change that event promotes. This is true in so many areas in our lives...for instance:

We commit to love and cherish our spouse at the wedding ceremony, but the outcome of that commitment is lived out in our daily actions and habits at home.

We commit to change our lives every Sunday during the emotional high of a church service, but the reality of that change only becomes concrete when we adapt our routines to remind us of the decision we've made.

Can you think of another event-process relationship in our society?
