Slowly but surely, God is shifting the paradigm of church and leadership.
It is becoming organic, simple and participatory, with healthy fellowships beginning to emerge.
All I can say is forget the buzz words by past advocates like Viola, Dale, Zens, Rodriguez, Giles, Rohde and their buddies …
With their failed attempts to impose their own existential, cookie-cutter visions of Christ and the Church on God’s people through books and blogs that never lined up with reality in their own lives and home towns.
Instead, go and let the Lord express Himself as He sees fit, building on the foundation already apostolically laid through Scripture as His authoritative written Word, in the unique context of diverse communities …
Where He still sends us today to make disciples among the lost and redeem nations.
That, my friends, is real “organic” church and leadership.
