“Bush...suffered from his lack of what he called ‘the vision thing,’ a clarity of ideas and principles that could shape public opinion and influence Congress. ‘He does not say why he wants to be there,’ complained columnist George Will, ‘so the public does not know why it should care if he gets his way.’”
You probably have to be 40 or over to remember this phrase as connected to President George H.W. Bush. We shouldn't feel too sorry for #41 though, because this idea has followed many a pastor into the study and the boardroom. Certain people expect for us to have a vision for the church.
Like President Bush, some of us struggle with "the vision thing" as well.
This episode of the podcast is a really fun one. Jonny and I talk about an idea that have finally executed at our church, then we have a conversation with Dave "the Animal" Jacobs on "the vision thing" in our 200churches.
Finally, we wrap up the episode expressing how we view vision in our own church. Particularly, I talk about how I think we should think about vision.
We hope that you enjoy it!
