To Think and Question
Does your organisation allow you to think or question?
Be cautious of organisations that do not encourage their members to think!
I have come across this process before where a consultative meeting is called for with a guise the get peoples input into a decision that has already been made. The “right words” are spoken but the reality is that all decisions have already been made.
I think that in some organisations and churches today there is a lack of critical thinking skills in both leaders and followers.
What will advance a cause is not blind following of an ideology based on tradition (no matter how young or old it is) or based on an ego or personality.
Critical thinking is essential, and the need to question is a paramount freedom that needs to exist in the life of the organisation or church. No leader should feel threatened by questioning unless they are so insecure in themselves, and if that is the case should they be in leadership? Remember not all leaders are good leaders and the insecure and egocentric leader is dangerous.
