Part E - Re-integration: Practical Sub-merging
In this section Ash’s wisdom and insight into the practical implementation of these ideas becomes clear. Using the metaphor of the well to talk about the significance and timing of team health, presence, partnership, discipleship and worship made all these ideas seem somewhat achievable although still very daunting.
Packing a final punch before finishing the book the chapters on ‘Barriers to Sub-Merging’ and ‘The Challenge’ probe deeply and I found myself exposed and obviously wanting in some areas. It might have been possible to keep the ideas in the rest of the book at arms length but these two make it clear that this is a personal invitation.
