God uses weakness
My rant today at LeadingDyingChurches.com:
Sure, we can learn from some of what business does (all truth is God’s truth), but these days the Christian world seems so enamored with emulating the business world, so that our churches start to resemble well-run corporations with franchises – miniature versions of Motorola or IBM – rather than the broken and wounded Body of Christ. I can’t get over the fact that Christ came to us in weakness and eschewed the powerful and chose fishermen and tax collectors. He talked being poor in spirit and opposed every worldly structure of success. He washed feet and ultimately gave up his life in the greatest display of weakness this world has ever seen (God dying). more
By the way, if you send me a letter, don’t start it off by calling me a “pace-setting church leader”.
