It was great to see Lewis Hamilton win the British Grand Prix at Silverstone this weekend. Of course, no one doubts that his podium position was the result of talent, teamwork and courage. But there is another quality in that mix; it is persistence. Since Mercedes, a few seasons back, had all sorts of technical problems with its cars yet sheer doggedness has turned the situation around to victory.
Most congregations are constantly trying to innovate yet never quite succeed. Why? Maybe we don’t persist in working though the hurdles in the way of any change. Yet if the idea was right in the first place, unrelenting determination will defeat these difficulties and win the race.
