This post is from the defunct blog “Dying Church”
I got this e-mail from a friend today, who attended the Extraordinary Women simulcast with CCN this past Saturday:
John Tesh was leading some worship songs. He talked about going to Africa for a special 5 day gathering of praise and prayer for the people involved in 9/11. After about day 3, he asked one of the organizers what was going on because the worship was so incredible. He asked something like, "Do you have great pastors, etc.?". The organizer told him basically that "here in Africa, it's not about the pastor or about the (whatever), it's about the Christ."
Sounds like something the dying church should aspire to say.
