This is a great article on what it means to be missional. These thoughts have been rattling around in my head of late. As I read Jerry’s words, I really felt that missional is really where the church needs to be.
I loved this last post — The Community Coming to Be Known As Missional.
Here is the quote that jumped out at me.
We are ruthlessly committed to people over programs, demanding that the latter always serve the former or it will be abandoned. We cooperate, not compete, not seeking to win the praise or demand the submission of others. Neither do we serve buildings and budgets, but they must serve us as we serve others. We seek our greatness in our pursuit to becoming servants.
I really don’t know what I could add to that.
