Untangling the day-to-day issues in our multifaceted lives can seem daunting. Time to sit quietly and reflect is rare.

The temptation to focus only on their own internal problems and issues is powerful for congregations.

Worst of all are congregations that adopt a 'fortress mentality', addressing... more...

There are no end to clichés and easy assumptions about congregational health and vitality. It's much easier to start a new church than turn around an old one; nondenominational churches are growing, while denominational churches are dying; small-membership churches are concerned only with survival; suburban churches care only about endless programming... more...
