We have spent the last week driving in places we were not familiar with. I’m thankful for the Global Positioning Satellite system the enabled my phone to direct our path. It knew the right turns to take and warned me ahead of time to prepare for them. It even promptly recalculated when i deviated from the prescribed route! There was, however, one required input from me. The system could only function if I told it where I wanted to go.
That leads me to think about the new leader we are looking for here at Campus. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a GPS guiding us as we navigate this path? I believe we have that in the group nominated to the search committee and the prayers of the faithful. We know where we are now! What we need to input is our destination.
As we think about it, where do we want Madison Campus to be two years from now, five years from now? What part do we want our church to play in our community? What impact do we want to be making in the lives of our young people, new believers, old believers? As you dream about the future, what part does your church play? As we begin this journey it would be best if we had a clear picture of our destination!
