“Most of us know or have a sense that “things aren’t working the way they used to work” in our congregations. And, most of us are experimenting and pressing on new things...Greg understands what’s going on and can help build a “sending” culture in your congregation.”
“If God has convinced you that the goal of your leadership in the church is not to get the community to come to church, but to get the church into the community; and, if you realize that you will need some encouragement and guidance from a brother who has become convinced of that himself and has navigated those waters in his own life and leadership, then Greg Finke and Dwelling 1:14 will be just what you need.”

Regarding how God launched his mission, we noted in last week’s post that the worldwide mission of God was not launched in a worldwide way. The final scope of Jesus’ mission will indeed be worldwide. But the launch was radically local and radically...
There are so many traditions it makes my head spin. Most are good and a few are exceptional. However, it seems to me many of us attempt to observe so many of these traditions that we become stressed, exhausted, and hydroplane from one observance to the next. Or we overlook Advent altogether and simply duck until Christmas Day.
Whatever your intention for Advent 2013, what if we took a moment and asked a simple question:
