Wrong question : How do we do church work better?

Right question: How do we partner with God in his redemptive work in the world beyond the church’s institutional concerns?

How is your faith community making the transition from one question to the other?

Great question. Our elders have moved to the second question in the last year or two. The result? Dropping many programs and traditions (painful, but necessary), expanding mission work locally and internationally, and a huge increase in "Jesus lived out" mission work in our city. Minorities have begun calling our church family home in large numbers, other churches are coming to visit us to see what is going on, and we are holding on to the door handles and letting God do the driving. This is soooo cool!
