At Least 10 Things Great Churches Are FOR
Shared By: Brandon Cox on July 14, 2016
Summary: The church has often, intentionally or not, been branded as a community of people who are angry and therefore are against everything not church-y.

From all sides. Some opinions I agree with and others I don’t, but what I’ve concluded is ultimately this: If I’m going to be known or listened to, I want it to be because of what I’m FOR, not what I’m against.

Let’s Keep Reaching Consumers. Aka, Lost Sheep.
Shared By: Brandon Cox on June 29, 2016

Some churches in America do tend to cater to the consumeristic mentality of our culture. But I think, on the whole, most churches don’t, and that’s actually part of the problem.
