As much as we talk and beg and plead for answers it is clear to me that the real answer is in our face. The SWRC is playing poker and apparently has a bad hand. Other conferences are all in while we have simply folded time and time again. Where is the opposition? What happened to Frank, Dino and Jerry? Where are Fraternity when it matters most. The plans people are requesting are going to affect the younger leaders the most and for the longest. Someone please tell me that leaders are leaders all the time and not just when election time rolls around. I cannot understand it. How men will go to Oakwood, complete Andrews University, and continue to act like high school students in a popularity contest. People, Mr. President, leaders of the SWRC, GET SOMETHING DONE.
The enthusiasm for change is there. God has willed that those in positions now are there to do his will. Why is it so hard? Who are we worrying about? How hard is it, for the President to convene a strategy seminar or conference to put legs on a plan that moves his administration forward? Do not squander the opportunity that the constituents gave you. There are too many people out there who stayed the long nights on election night, and drove the long distances to see this leadership team succeed.
Be transparent. What is the plan? The Strategic Planning Committee must do a better job at this or in my opinion they are ineffective and should allow or hire a CEO to come in and show them what a real strategic campaign plan looks like. Something with various lines of effort, a long range calendar, and multiple levels of strategic, operational, and tactical leadership within the conference and churches. The Strategic Chair has to do a better job of selling this plan because all we have is a flier with pictures on it. Really? However, it is not too late for the Chairperson to market and promote it by making it known. But if the Chair wont stand by it, then it wont matter how many legs you put on it, you still wont have a table. Here is my Question? Why is it so hard to put the information out or simply say “I don’t have any Kings. Go Fish.”
