Seth Godin wrote a short blog post:
Instead of out thinking the competition...it's worth trying to outlove them. Everyone is working hard on the thinking part, but few of your competitors worry about the art and generosity and caring part.
There are more and more books written on church leadership, church growth, church strategy etc. Then we have a countless blogs and websites telling us how we should be doing it. Not only do we have numerous conferences on our doorstep, easy travel has meant we can visit other countries and see for ourselves and then to cap things off we can now stream preaching, teaching & conferences right to our fingertips without leaving home.
This way, that way, a new way on and on the voices speak.
It all gets so complicated but maybe just maybe it is a little simpler.
Maybe we just need to galvanise everyone in our church to OUTLOVE people.
Maybe we should focus a little more on the "generosity and caring part".
