Visioning Day Vision
The Fort Worth chapter of Contemplative Outreach had a Visioning Day Saturday, Aug. 25, facilitated by Susan Komis of Contemplative Outreach Ltd.
The purpose of the day was to gain a vision for what we should be doing here in Fort Worth to further the aim of Contemplative Outreach, which in a nutshell is to emphasize the contemplative dimension of the Gospel and to bring it into daily life.
The Visioning Day went something like this:
We looked at the strengths of our group here in Fort Worth and determined
that they were these:
Then we looked at our challenges, and these, in no particular order,
Then we each voted on which ones we thought we needed to do first. These
We decided to try and work on these basic areas for the next year or two and then re-evaluate where we are and what we need to do next, perhaps have a mini-Visioning Day to refocus our vision. The leadership team will be meeting soon to plot the next steps. The date and time of the meeting will be posted to the email announcement list and on this Web site.
We'd be happy to hear from any of you who have something to add to the discussion and to the endeavor.
May the grace, peace and love of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
