Ten Things: A Letter to Church Leadership

Jeremy Lowrey has written a provocative paper on the current condition of the church. His ten principles:

  1. The body is responsible
  2. Repentance is essential
  3. Focus on Jesus
  4. Don’t lead
  5. Motivate with love
  6. Value lives lived for Jesus
  7. Acknowledge the power
  8. Listen and wait
  9. Don’t lie
  10. Embrace faith

It reads a lot like a manifesto. I like its focus on repentance, Christ, and on moving out of comfortable life and ministry. There’s some good stuff in there.

There are many issues he raises that need further discussion, and I certainly don’t agree with every direction he takes. But a paper like this is a good discussion starter, especially for those who haven’t yet wrestled with some of the issues being raised with the modern church. Jeremy does a good job of raising some of these issues.
