Articulating A Vision - Based on our process above, we now have what we need to provide many of our PWOCs with a vision statement: a clearer understanding of their unique struggles with faith and obedience, a clearer understanding of the solutions the Lord consistently brought to those struggles, and where we see those themes of struggle and solution in the Scriptures.
Considering a "one-size-fits-many" approach for our tools of vision, theme, etc.
-Putting The Pieces Together- We're ready to move to practical application: articulating a vision statement for your local PWOC.
We're one step away from articulating a vision for your installation's PWOC. Remember, it's always an issue of the heart for our trust and obedience, not merely changing our circumstances so it's easier to live in this world.
One last push to see if those who started processing the demographics of their Installations and what area(s) their ladies are struggling in would finish processing the scripture elements that might go with those struggles.
Thank you, ladies, for your specific insights on the unique challenges of your individual installations. Where do you think your Installation is in the Bible?
Where To Begin? A vision focuses us on a more specific aspect of ministry because the other important parts are already being addressed in godly ways. But before we propose biblical answers, we need to be sure we've identified a biblical problem.
Over the last 5 years, we've articulated some great themes. This year, we're refocusing the process to help with more than just themes. The hope is that those sisters desiring to serve in the next year(s) may glean insight to discern the unique needs of their Installation and how the Gospel can impact that community.
