There is no doubt in my mind that current news, national and international politics have led us into a time of disruptive change. Previous generations saw change happen slowly and methodically. People had enough time to adjust to the future. 2016 has seen so many radical, unprecedented changes and these changes are causing the collapse of families, industries and even national governments. The impact of change has hit us like a tsunami, and it feels as though the onslaught keeps coming, one wave after the other.
While the results of BREXIT, the US Elections, and the corruption in SA politics may leave you feeling insecure about the future, this is the perfect season to seek God’s will. Disruptive change is creating a sense of urgency and we need to be poised and ready to give an account of the hope that is within us.
This year has been a successful and impactful year for Unashamedly Ethical. The movement continues to grow internationally. This year members of our UE Team have presented the vision across Africa, Australia, Europe and the USA. All around the world people are tired of institutional, political and corporate corruption and are open to seeing and hearing a new message. We believe UE can provide a Godly alternative to the issues facing individuals, companies and even nations.
The UE team has settled into a small but strong unified team and our times of strategic planning have increased our vision for the future.
On a personal note I have stepped down as the Executive Chairman of the Power Group of Companies after 34 years. This decision will allow me more time to focus on mentoring, coaching and personal prayer and reflection. After the traumatic year Lauren experienced last year, we continue to rejoice at her healing and health. Her lungs are 95% clear and other than the arthritis and neuropathy in her legs she is doing well and we look forward to an even better year in 2017.
I would like to thank you for you continued support for UE, I still firmly believe that each one of us has a unique and strategic part to play in the stemming of corruption in our nation. We can make a difference and stem the tide.
Together with Lauren, my five children and five grandchildren I wish you a blessed Christmas season that is filled with family, love and laughter.
Let’s make 2017 a year of Kingdom expansion.
