Andrew Wilson on “vision” in a local church:
Hopefully, of course, the vision you have and the vision you say you have are the same. But in my experience they often aren’t.
How do you tell whether the vision you (or they) say you have is the vision you (or they) actually have? Well: the vision you say you have is the one on your website, poster, flyer, bulletin, billboard, projector screen, video, order of service or whatever else you do. That much seems clear. The vision you actually have, though it is not as immediately obvious, can fairly easily be identified by asking five questions.
