What I did not know, was that the more clear I got about who we were theologically, culturally, and functionally would help people know that our church was not for them. A vague vision leaves room for everyone, but a clear vision does not. If no one ever leaves your church it may be that your vision is simply to vague. I wish I could go back and tell myself to prepare to lose people as I became more clear regarding who God had called us to be.
