Insight 316: FaithSoaring Churches Choose the Narrow Path
Congregations seeking to transform resist the temptation to emulate the success of other congregations, the desire to compete with other congregations who are successful in the same community context, and the easy pathway of embracing an organization’s understanding of what a transformed congregation looks like.
Instead they seek to be exactly what it is that God is calling them to be. This is a more difficult pathway than many others, but one that is more deeply satisfying and fulfilling. It is one that has the ability to last longer and be sustainable because it fits the emerging spiritual culture of congregations.
