This morning our long range facility team gathered over early pancakes. Our conversation was focused on big picture hopes and dreams for the building from which we might someday minister. What do we think is most important– location, available time, space, catalyst for community? Obviously we value all of them, but how do we rank them and prioritize so that we can evaluate options that are on the market? Great conversation. SMART conversation partners. BIG GOD with lots of resources.
As I read Seth’s blog post, I realized we were doing what he is talking about: Practicing the discipline of not jumping to execution, so we can prayerfully listen to God’s direction, strategy, and come in line with his core values for our church. I am so thankful for this community and the ways I am growing as a leader as I spend time with people way more gifted than I.
