a Biblical thought...
The captain of the guard and those with him, when they saw the earthquake and everything else that was happening, were scared to death. They said, "This has to be the Son of God!" (Matt 27:54)

a Book thought...
Potential leaders are often those who are questioning our decisions, challenging us, or suggesting alternate plans. (p33 Logan & Miller)
a Dave thought...
I had an interesting conversation yesterday about the making of a strategy. Do we need one? How do you go about formulating one? Who needs to buy into it? Then when it is implemented what does accountability look like?

The problem with visions and plans is that they are often personality driven, many of us have an idea and if we do our homework and present it in a palatable way we can get the go ahead to proceed. As an organisation even though there are many good ideas we somehow have to get more strategic about which ones are worth proceeding with. Like all effective military movements unless we know and implement a specific plan we can end up keeping busy just looking after ourselves, rather than engaging in the areas God is wanting us to.

Just a thought.
