In a recent enewletter from Christianity Today, writer Will Reaves reviews Barna’s book Revolution [http://ctlibrary.com/33558] and makies this comment:
“[Barna seems to be] comparatively unconcerned about the death of churches: ‘[T]he traditional local congregation has not effectively produced mature disciples.’ But Barna has yet to explain how anything else can.”
I believe we in the emerging missional community of faith in Fergus Falls have that answer. I believe we are living in commnity and engaging missionally in such a way that fosters spiritual growth and the making of discipoles.
I am thrilled about the journey ahead of us. May the Lord lead us in His direction.
