Dream Catchers

Great math from Mark Batterson:

Doing – Dreaming = Waste of Energy
Dreaming – Doing = Disobedience
Dreaming + Doing = Exponential Kingdom Impact

We've got to make sure our doing is motivated by God-ordained dreaming. But we also need to make sure our dreams get done.

Which of these equations describes your church/ministry?

I love this! Hope you don't mind if I borrow it and use it at our next ad council meeting.

Unfortunately, I think that where I am now has historically been a church of "doing - dreaming" where the almost all of the doing is what I call "country club" doing.

Now I'm starting to see a little more dreaming among some people...but doing is becoming something that "other people will do". My prayer is that we can become a church that models the third with the dreaming being kingdom focused and not "us" focused.
