from the series Becoming a People of Grace
In recent decades, many churches have taken on a corporate mentality that suggests everything should be slick, efficient, and planned for the greatest profit or expansion. We have begun to lose a sense of family or “body life,” where each of the members is an integral and related part with all the others. This has left churches increasingly disconnected and diseased. We need an infusion of healthy thinking that will bring us together, so that many individuals can work together as one for our common purpose of bringing glory to God.
