I am not alone

January 17, 2003

In today’s surfing, I am encouraged that I am not alone. Catch of the day: emerging church. A church that’s really striving to do it: Church of the Apostles. I especially like the way they describe their “home churches”: like the cell church model, it’s the center of who they are, but unlike the cell church model, they do not prescribe much beyond that.

I think a big challenge of postmodern leadership is to point to a clear vision, while at the same time making sure that vision describes the “what,” but not the “how.” In fact, the flexibility of the “how” is a key element of the “what.” I must learn to be less rigid about the way things actually take shape, ride the wind, and enjoy the ride.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.
