Many years ago my husband and I attended a leadership conference hosted by our church. There were many amazing speakers over the course of the weekend and a lot of wisdom was shared. But there was one speaker who shared a phrase which so resonated with me that it has repeatedly come to mind ever since.
“A mist in the pulpit is a fog in the pews.” (Dr. Howard Hendricks)
Now, obviously this is a reference to those in roles as pastors or preachers, but I believe that the essence of this statement is applicable to anyone who has a circle of influence…which is basically all of us.
If you are unclear about your vision or your goal, then it is going to be REALLY unclear to those around you. And here, At the Picket Fence, we don’t want things to be unclear. We don’t want you to be in the ‘fog’.
