W.O.W. (Website of the Week)

This week's WOW is a simple site that I found to be a thought provoking read. Give it a visit sometime and decide if you are a 'friend of missional'. Then drop a comment here: What do you think?

  • WOW is right!!! I love this quote:

    "The church should stop mimicking the surrounding culture and become an alternative community, with a different set of beliefs, values and behaviors. Ministers would no longer engage in marketing; churches would no longer place primary emphasis on programs to serve members. The traditional ways of evaluating 'successful churches' – bigger buildings, more people, bigger budgets, larger ministerial staff, new and more programs to serve members – would be rejected. New yardsticks would be the norm: To what extent is our church a 'sent' community in which each believer is reaching out to his community? To what extent is our church impacting the community with a Christian message that challenges the values of our secular society?"

    Still reading, but I'm impressed.

    What would mark Christ's Church?

    And ... is it possible that we do away with the labels like "missional", "emergent" etc.? Something about them rubs me the wrong way, though what they say is good.
