From Next Reformation (under June 18; permalinks not working):
The Minister looked out over the congregation. Around 2,000 had gathered for morning worship in this surburb of Sydney, Australia. Every eye was on him as they awaited his message for that morning. ìMany of you are here, but you donít want to be here,î he began. ìYou are tired of church but come out of obligation. My suggestion is that you leave and donít come back. But if I can be of any help in what you end up doing for the kingdom, then give me a call.î It wasnít the only thing he said, but I have confirmed from the Minister that this remarkable invitation actually did happen. It reflected his belief that modern church structures and life stifle true engagement with the world, and that church can be seen in broader ways than we have traditionally come to define it.
