Paul Powell once said “Many churches today remind me of a laboring crew

trying to gather in a harvest while they sit in the tool shed. They go to the

tool shed every Sunday and they study bigger and better methods of

agriculture, sharpen their hoes, grease their tractors, and then get up and go

home. Then they come back that night, study bigger and better methods of

agriculture, sharpen their hoes and grease their tractors and go home again.

They come back Wednesday night, and again study bigger and better methods

of agriculture, sharpen their hoes, grease their tractors, and get up and go

home. They do this week in and week out, year in and year out, and nobody

ever goes out into the fields to gather in the harvest.”
