Been reading And: The Gathered and Scattered Church by Hugh Halter & Matt Smay and I thought I’d give the patrons a chance to think about a quote or two as I read along…

[God’s people] are tired of being the unsent church–weary of church services, sermons, in-house programs, and Bible studies that never push them out and challenge them to really be the missional people God has called them to be. I won’t deny that it’s more comfortable driving the side roads, but after a while they can get pretty boring. I think it’s time for the church of God, in all its diverse forms, to be the church, to get out on the open road, and to let God smile on us as we4 follow him out on the highways of the world.”

What are your thoughts as you read this, patrons?
