Systems theory also posits that every member within a system has an impact on the system - thereby creating a dynamic system. The passive person, the dominant person, the worker bee, the occasional attender, the clergy - all play a role. Learning what each of these roles entails, recognizing your own role in the system, and recognizing the impact your role has are all a part of understanding systems theory and using it to help your congregation. An accurate description of the dynamic and your part in it, often called the dance, is the beginning of understanding how to change the dance.
