Vision (Beth Guckenberger)
Vision is listening to The Lord and taking the next step.
Vision is putting yourself in the position where God can write the best possible story for you.
Nobody wants to hear about what man is not doing. They want to here about what God IS doing.
Millennials are hungry for churches that show vulnerability.
We have to be honest with one another.
For whoever has despised the day of small things shall rejoice, and shall see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel. – Zech 4:10
