Vision is not limited to leaders. A good leader casts a wide eye to a sweeping horizon and then tells other people about what he or she sees (a vision), but is never surprised when someone else sees something more, or different. Many people get a turn in the crow’s nest. People need the light bulb of community engagement to come on in their heads by way of leadership through example, which in turn fires their imagination. Don’t wait for that campaign that will get everyone in the church (and perhaps other churches) involved in a community-transforming moment.
23. Read the seven letters to the churches in Revelation 2 and 3 and make notes on what the essential qualities of faithful churches are. 24. Decide that you as a leader will be bold in simplifying and focusing your ministry. Make a list of six ways in which you can do that in the next six months. 25. Go to the place where your church meets at a time when no one else is around. Have an hour of prayer, asking God to give you a vision of a Whole Church. 2 Co n f l i c t a n d F r ag m e n tat i o n THE BIG IDEA While we try to foster the Whole Church, we need to be aware of the dynamics of fragmentation that always exist in every church.
The proposition offered here is this: the pattern of public worship is transformational insofar as it is an authentic engagement with God. That 44 Whole Church may sound obvious, but because we are entirely capable of “doing worship” in ways that come nowhere close to God, or that come close but are hesitant to engage, we have to commit to the work of creative and deep thinking in our planning for worship. But let’s get concrete so that we don’t just linger in the theory. We know that worship in the local church, at its worst, can be lifeless, rote, vacuous, cliché (an insult to both divine and human nature), selfish, prejudicial, exploitative, manipulative, dehumanizing, or idolatrous—in other words, “false worship,” an expression that should strike fear into us.
