lesson 2: don’t let wishful thinking deceive you

Written by Mark Van Steenwyk : November 10, 2006

I have made the mistake of building with people who didn’t buy into the vision; I assumed they’d eventually “get it” and so I might as well make them integral now. Big mistake. I think I fell into this one because it takes so long and so much for someone to really sign onto Missio Dei. We have a somewhat steep learning curve (if you are a churched Christian). I’ve spent too much of the past two years trying to convince people who were already a part of Missio Dei that our vision was worth committing to. It is better to build with the few who really get it then it is to build with the many who somewhat get it.
