I’m in a dreaming stage again. I usually get nuggets of ideas from conferences or individuals and shape my own vision from the little pieces of information I hear elsewhere. This week I’ve been flooded with ideas so that my head is exploding. Since I always want to dream big dreams, (because I don’t think I can ever out-dream God) today I sent an email to a few people in the church to solicit the current thoughts on their mind. It was a select group of people I trust (I also had their email addresses on my phone), but I’m not afraid to open up the dialogue. Below is the email I sent. Feel free to add your own ideas.
Would you play along with me on something? I was reflecting at our 3rd anniversary of Grace Community Church about how blessed with have been as a church with talented people. I think it’s important that we continually rely on the wisdom of others. You have insight and experience Chad and I don’t have. So, would you complete this sentence for me?
Just to note: This is just for my own personal brainstorming and doesn’t mean we will use anything you offer but who knows what ideas you have.
Here’s the sentence:
If I were leading this organization I would_______________.
1. Use your imagination
2. Be nice and respectful. I’m a sensitive guy.
3. Don’t offer ideas without a way to actually do them. (I’m looking for concrete feedback).
