Some great reaction at Naked Church to my summary of Tim Keller’s EMA talk:
The way of repentance and humility is the only way back. We can substitute best practices and methodologies that may enable us to build flashy, impressive megachurches, but all we’ll be doing is attracting church-hopping consumers. Please don’t misunderstand me as saying that organization and methodology are without value – they are vital components in church planting and revitalization of existing churches. But they are only useful as tools in the hands of a church that is made up of repentant sinners transformed and empowered by the spirit of Christ manifesting compassion and humility.
