  1. Karl, Great post on vision and vision casting. One of my dislikes of pastors casting a vision for an established church, is they don’t know the history of the church. And if churches have a parade of pastors they tend to be whip-sawed from one vision to the other.
    Thanks again for the encouragement and challenge to be a pastor to the flock God has called you to.
