It Goes Without Saying ... Doesn't It?

This past winter I participated  in a workshop provided by the Center for Congregational Health.  Bill Wilson is the President of this organization and I recently read an article he wrote, 10 Ideas That Should Go Without Saying in Church.  Wilson writes: "There are many things we may assume are shared values that are actually called into question every day. One of the signs of a healthy church and a healthy leader is giving focused attention to the fundamentals.  Making Jesus the filter through which all such questions pass keeps us true to our calling."  Wilson goes on to add a short list of 10 ideas that should go without saying in the church.  Read and reflect on the list.
