I refer to this "quote" in almost every consultation, coaching call, workshop, and seminar I give. I believe this line is a version of something Niccolò Machiavelli wrote in The Prince, but I've never confirmed it.

Regardless, I believe the pursuit of problem-free delays more ministry than almost anything else. I also believe there are no problem free small group ministry systems, models or strategies.
