The Church, Hope, and  Entrepreneurship
More than anything in thesetimes of fear, worry and anxiety,our country and our world needa big vision of hope — and youand I, in church and in business,are called to catch this vision andgo for it. Think of the gifts thechurch as a community brings towhat a leader recently called this“broad coalition of hope” whichour society needs.
 As a church we know about  growth
Growing from a handful toover 2 billion followers — that’sour history; that’s our future too.
Continuous process of newplanting and renewal.
We know about innovation and creativity
History shows the church con-stantly being renewed andrevived.
We are always being led by theHoly Spirit to develop newapproaches and means of com-municating the eternal Gospel ofsalvation.
We are global
We are a global movement witha focus on understanding thatChrist is welcome in all culturesbut is at home in none because ofculture’s tendency to domesticatehim.
We are able to think globallyand act locally — I think of York-shire villages teaming up withSouth African communities toaddress local and global prob-lems.
We are dreamers and visionaries
We are inspired by a big vision— the dream and reality of theKingdom of Heaven on earth.
We have a vision for the trans-formation of society and what itmeans to be fully human.
We are risk takers
We are willing to work withambiguity and uncertainty.
We have pushed the boat out,and will continue to do so,because we have a God who ven-tured all for us in Christ.
We are committed to hard work
In the church people committheir lives to the mission and giveselflessly — even when there is arecession.
We remain even if the resultsare slow in coming.
We have a great model of leader-ship
Following Jesus, we are notafraid to swim against the tide —
