Vision - Passion - Dissatisfaction

The keynote speaker at the Church Growth Conference from which I have just returned was the Revd, John Daniel of the Presbyterian Church of New Zealand.  (I met John when I was in NZ in 2009.)  John said lots of interesting things, but one that particularly struck me was his definition of what is needed for change - and growth will bring change!

He identified three things.  First, we need vision.  Vision provides a snapshot of the desired future.  Second, we need passion.  Passion provides the energy.  Third, we need dissatisfaction.  Dissatisfaction provides the momentum - if we are not dissatisfied with the status quo, we won't change it.
