Alice in Wonderland
We easily suffer from the myopia of Alice in Alice in Wonderland: “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the cat.
“I dont much care where,” said Alice.
“Then it doesnt matter which way you go,” said the cat.
“So long as I get somewhere,” Alice added as an afterthought.
“Oh, youre sure to do that,” said the cat, “if only you walk long enough.”
Leadership is not about “getting somewhere”; it is about getting to the desired destination. It is about helping those we leadour congregation, our family, our Sunday school classbecome all God designed them to be and grow into the influence God wants them to exercise.
