Ice Breaker – I Have A Dream

Ice Breaker

Each week on The Stretched Blog, I ask an ice breaker question. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

Over the next few days, people will be celebrating the life of MLK (Martin Luther King Jr.).  He is known for speaking out against racial inequality.  His speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. is often quoted – “I have a dream….”  MLK’s dreams are still being realized and worked on today.  This week’s Stretched Ice Breaker is inspired by his famous speech.

Question:  Finish the sentence, I have a dream ___________.

My Answer:  I have a dream that men, women, and children all over the world would develop a mission mindset.  When I say mission mindset what do I mean?  Sure I’d love to see people going on mission trips all over the world.  But this isn’t really my dream.  My dream is that people would see the mission field right where they live and work.  My dream is that they would have a focus on reaching out to people in their neighborhoods, in their workplaces, and even in their homes.  What’s your dream?
