Church beSchmirch

I’m reading “Think Orange” by Reggie Joiner and came across this train of thought:

“Multiple expressions of the church are important in communicating God’s story to a diverse culture.
Some leaders suggest
that institutional churches can never be relational.
that traditional churches can never be relevant,
that megachurches can never be intimate,
that attractional churches are not missional,
that missional churches don’t draw people,
that emergent churches never teach anything substantial,
that seeker churches don’t have depth, and
that organic churches don’t have any direction.”

[he goes on]

“I hope whatever version of church you are leading (or for those of you who are organic, whatever nonversion of church you are not leading), that you are willing to rethink. . .”

Just thought you might enjoy that.
