The Church: a vision for present and future

A ship is built for two reasons: to weather the conditions of travel and to carry passengers to a destination. Both are necessary for a proper vessel.

One may build a church to weather cultural/social conditions with little regard for the destination. One may also envision and build a church for the destination with little regard for the tumultuous journey.

A vision for the future equips for the present. And an engagement in the present sets the course for the future.
