No congregation with high resistance to transition and change that may lead to transformation has a clear vision for the future. The two are incompatible. If a congregation is motivated by a clear vision from God for its full Kingdom potential its willingness to transition and change will empower forward progress.
If a congregation is not captivated by a clear vision from God for its full Kingdom potential it has little motivation to transition and change. Without a clear forward direction, it sees its next steps to in its perception of the history of the congregation rather than its future.
