When Churches Die

Interesting.

“My people in particular, when they tap into giving their lives away… their lives are transformed.”

These people are more interested in being fruitful than in maintaining what’s good, what’s worked in the past.

I’ve heard it said that people will sacrifice a great deal for a pioneering vision, less to maintain the status quo and hardly anything just because they’re told to.

Gospel events have typically been the go-to method churches have used to attempt to engage culture with the gospel. While I wholeheartedly believe in the power of gathered people I firmly believe both the increasing secularisation of society and the eagerness of younger generations to engage with church building demand that we start to engage culture primarily through our lives, not primarily through an event.

Christian community must be among the people. Missional community, not just community that goes on missions to invite people to an event.

How can we burst our community bubble?
