Dear friends in Christ,
Have you ever heard of a BHAG? It stands for Big Hairy Audacious Goal.
I have a tendency to make BHAGs that are ridiculously big. They can get a little crazy if you don’t limit yourself. Do you have a BHAG for your life? For your home? For your health? For your church? Some people have BHAGs as their new year’s resolutions. Get in shape. Get finances in order. Try new things. Eat less junk. But a BHAG for your faith life or a BHAG for your church could affect more than just your waistline or your wallet. It could affect people. It could mean that the gospel is being made known.
Do you ever think of a Big Hairy Audacious Goal for our church that you think could be something amazing for the kingdom of God? What is it? I want to know. I think you’ve known me long enough now to know that I’m open to crazy ideas. I want to know what you think. What’s the thing that you think could share the love of God with our communities? Who do you think needs to feel God’s love more than anybody else?
Dear friends, you are loved by a loving God. Let’s tell the world. Let’s start making our BHAGs a reality.
Peace and love of crazy ideas,
