You cannot preach vision into people. There must be something behind it.
Even if vision is present, to actually move it to reality does require some parts and bits and pieces.
Behind VISION is VALUES.
(“You want to change the values of people? Change their heroes.”)
Visions of the Church:
(Expect a plethora of visions in a congregation… that’s healthy. Be careful not to fight each other- none of us can do everything. Think about the values of your young people.)
Before Vision is… Story; and… Observed Culture.
Our stories shape the heroes in our minds.
“Create culture, build a hero; Create a hero, build a culture.”
