Success/Good Intentions

 The exposed words "success depends on more than just good intentions" was the catalyst to consider what the reality of my experience was compared to the ideal of my "good intentions." I identified the particular context (the nature and "being" of church) and the reflected on the so-called success of my ideals about the nature of church over-against (current) reality. It was helpful to define what has been going well and where the primary challenges continue to exist.
