Back in 1970, as a young minister working in Melbourne, Australia, I read a book titled Future Shock. The author, futurist Alvin Toffler, forecast that the next few decades would bring unprecedented change, and that this would have a disorienting effect on those who would live through them.
As a young man with my career ahead of me, I found this fascinating. If Toffler was right, we could expect the remainder of the 20th century to be turbulent, and the wise approach would be to prepare for change, however unsettling that might be.
