Many congregations get busy. They get busy about being busy. They add things to their calendar thinking that more things will produce more results. It is the Protestant work ethic fully enshrined. But, does it help the congregation to more faithful, effective, and innovative? Is it empowering the transformation of the congregation? Seldom.
Congregations truly wanting to transform talk about how to use every gathering of their congregation to not only worship the Triune God, help people to grow spiritually, deepen the relationships in the congregation, but also to reinforce their vision and intentional fulfillment of that vision.
