in Through Lenses


This is from Frank Viloa and George Barna’s book, Pagan Christianity

It makes me wonder about how we’ve complicated God’s mission. By trying to be “structured” have we, as Christ followers made things more complicated.

Every Church leader must always ask, “through our, mostly well-intentioned “structuring, are not making God and relationship with Him, inaccessible?” [Click to Tweet]

If we had to push “reset” and became the early Church, would we be, as the Church, what we are now?

God, help us to be as you would have us be. Both in relationship with You and with those that don’t follow you.
