Acts 11:1-18

I think the burden to explain change rests upon the one causing the changes.  A lot of times people who want to implement change just figure that they can go do it.  They think about it for a long time, embrace the idea, and then implement it.  The problem is that other people haven't had the benefit of having that much time.  They have this new information shoved on them all of a sudden and are forced to respond.  
Usually this response will be something like rejection of the change.  But if you take the time to explain the reasoning behind it, help them embrace the idea, and show them why it's happening, people will be much more supportive.  It's just harder to do it that way, but it's a whole lot more productive.  JM
