The Church

The church should be concerned with in-reach (teaching and formation) and outreach (mission) and upreach (worship), not just upkeep!

A great summary. Reaching in, reaching out, and reaching up! I am putting together a concise ministry plan for our church...and I was planning to explain the big picture of our mission in these terms. Very cool.

I would just be happy if people stopped going to church and started being the church. You know, letting the world know they are Christ's deciples by loving one another, helping one another, upholding one another.

Oh, what am I talking about? Like that will ever happen. And that is precisely why I haven't darkend the door of a church in years. The kind of love dished out in most churches will kill you.
