Our Leadership team is going through this program called co-horts. It’s something that our area network puts together for us. The leader is a brilliant man named Mel Ming. He must read like a book a minute becuase he seems to be well versed on all things church leadership.
One of the books that we are supposed to read is John Burke’s No Perfect People Allowed
I’m only two chapters into this book and already I’m totally diggin’ it.
Here’s a quote:
“Nothing poses a greater challenge and opportunity to the church than the overwhelming emotional pains that drive our generation into so many addictive behaviors. If Christian leaders do not prepare and organize and pray so that healing can occur from the wounds caused by the Postmodern Experiment, we will lose a generation. Trust issues make them cynical, tollerance issues may make them unwilling to listen, truth issues may confuse them, but acting out of brokeness will destroy them.” [italics mine]
I am sure I will be posting more from the book. Pretty sure it’s going to challenge me and stretch me and remind me that people where ever they are in life are important to God and if they don’t surrrender to Jesus Christ and the Gospel then they are lost. Tragic but True!
