One of the things that I found frustrating at our staff retreat was that everybody was giving their opinion about everything. Then someone would say that we need to come to a decision, and everybody would continue giving their input.
I think input is great, but at some point the senior executive staff must make the decisions. I love being able to give my input, and we are certainly welcome to go with it at anytime, but I'm not the one that is able to say here is what we are going to do.
It just seemed like a waste of time for all of us to continually debate every issue that our church is facing. JM
