There are five or six blogs that I consistently read. There are another half dozen that I skim and peruse occasionally. One of the regulars is written by James Emery White, lead pastor of Mecklenburg Community Church, a megachurch in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Here is a link to one of his recent posts: Sears and the Church. Because I am thinking a lot about church and culture, our post-Christian culture, and how Christianity is probably in for some rough times in the next few decades, you will see why I liked this post.
As we face this future, we need creative leadership; faithful women and men of prayer; a robust Christian worldview and mindset; a missional engagement with our culture that shows the beauty and glory of Christ, without compromising or watering down who Jesus is; and faith, hope, and love.
In all three, I am sincerely yours,
Having the ability to empower and resource leaders to bear much fruit that lasts. Being a part of a team of friends and missional servants committed to changing the world.
