Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


A Vision for the Future

I believe in leadership by self definition, which means that a leader is always accountable to the group being led for defining where he or she sees the group headed and why and how the group will get to that goal. I also believe in servant leadership, so a self check is if you never get to where you said the group was going, you are not a leader. The second self check is that if you always get to where you said you would, how you said you would, you are not a servant leader as you are not letting the vision be shaped by others.

King of Peace: A Vision for the Future is a four-page look at where we have been, where we are and where we are headed as a church. In it, I use the image of a suspension bridge being built as that was what I saw at King of Peace this past February. We had, metaphorically speaking, more bridge than supports. It was crucial to put more supports in place for the sake of what we had already built as well as supporting our vision for the future. This vision is the product of a prior work and a recent retreat by the Mission Vestry. The vision goes into the mail today. The Adobe PDF version is linked above.
