We can't help it. Regardless of how balanced we hope our churches
will be around things
like small groups, teaching, evangelism, discipleship, community, outreach... our churches end up looking just like us. It just happens. Our passions turn into vision. Our blind-spots become the church's neglect. Because vision is not just what we say... but what we fail to talk about. If we're not into small groups, neither will our churches. If we're not generous, our leaders will be hoarders. And on and on. At the end of the day, our biggest frustrations with the church can be seen right in the mirror.
