My latest article for Out of Ur was posted earlier today. In it I try to make the case that we need more churches willing to take seriously the reconciling nature of the gospel. This, I believe, ought to be reflected not just in our preaching and teaching but in our methods and strategies as well.
A lot of energy is currently being expended debating which church models are most Biblical. House or mega? Plant or second site? Video or campus pastor? These may be important questions, but any model that fails to take seriously the reconciliation envisioned by Paul will also fail to fully communicate the Gospel message with power.
The entire article can be read at Out of Ur and I’m curious whether folks think I’m stating things simplistically and idealistically or whether I’m on to something.
