This “Out of Context” quote from the Out of Ur blog popped up in my RSS feeds this morning. I thought it appropriate for sharing here, based on what appear to be some shared beliefs on the state of our churches:

“Few people see Christianity as a shift of allegiance that prompts us to make personal changes in beliefs, habits, and lifestyles. We must continually examine our churches to make sure our message is one that requires transformation.”- Sarah Cunningham

When was the last time your church leadership held a meeting to examine whether or not they were “requiring” transformation? In our numerocentric church cultures, it seems like requiring anything is frowned upon. .
