These days I am learning that one of the weights of leadership is thinking ahead. As this picture illustrates I'm trying to take my tiny clump of assignments, priorities, and goals (call it my "world") and hold them out in my hand. Specifically, what does God want to do in my life, the Johnston family, and TRPC in 2012?
It takes time, effort, and prayer to envision the next 365 days of life. It takes time, careful communication, and trust-filled cooperation for a body of leaders (i.e. a couple, or a council of elders) to grab hold of a common vision and intentionally pursue it. May the Lord grant wisdom to each one who is pursuing a life of intentional obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ.
