I've about finished the book "Breakout Churches" and here is an interesting passage about "passion". "Without passion there is no vision. We've found no churches that had anything resembling a true vision unless the leadership, particularly the pastor was passionate about something. Of 427 churches we examined, only 6 % of those congregations had a leader who was clearly passionate. The breakout churches, however had a passion to reach and minsiter to the community."

Are you passionate about what you do? What am I passionate about? Golf, leadership, church, computers? Find your passion and you'll find a job. My pastor told me when I was preparing to get into the ministry and church leadership, not to do it unless I couldn't stay out of it. Of course, I had a passion and couldn't stay out of it.
