The Importance of Thinking Small

“I look on all the world as my parish; thus far I mean, that, in whatever part of it I am, I judge it meet, right and my bounden duty, to declare unto all that are willing to hear, the glad tidings of salvation.” John Wesley

We have been encouraged all our lives to THINK BIG. I am all for that and do believe we need a vision as big as the world. But we need the corresponding ability to break the world into small pieces. Often people hide behind the veil of big thinking in order to shirk the responsibility for messy engagement. Churches run from one big program to another hoping that the next big thing will be the magic red pill of success. We need to learn to think small! We will explore this notion through four messages in January. Spend some time with these stories as the New Year begins. I look forward to worshipping and serving with you in 2012.
