Our staff has been thinking about our vision statement for Hayward Wesleyan Church. In pondering our specific statement, I spent some time musing over God's vision. What is God's greatest vision for this world? What is his primary dream for His universe? While the mind of God is ultimately unsearchable and any desire to place our fingers on the totality of God's vision is an exercise in futility. . .I do think from Scripture we get at least some insight in the vision of God. I think Dallas Willard sums up that vision in a holistic and imaginative way. Read this basic vision slowly and meditatively three or four times. Think, ponder, imagine and envision this statement as a reality. And, in doing so, God will unveil himself to you in a deeper more tangible way.
“ The aim of God in human history is the creation of an inclusive community of loving persons, with himself included as its primary sustainer and most glorious inhabitant.”
