Drew has lunch with the Barna Group today, and in the process of digesting the interaction
David asks, “What if we, as the church, have gotten really good about drawing people into our weekend church services? What if we have gotten really good about engaging them in worship, teaching, and fellowship during these weekend services? We’d probably be pretty happy right?
However, what if in doing this, we have made people dependant on the weekend service for worship, teaching, and fellowship? What if in doing this, we have enabled them to be unable to worship, learn from Scripture, and engage in fellowship throughout the rest of the week? What if in doing this, we have actually been “doing” church for our congregants rather than releasing them “to be” the church. What if in doing this, we are actually doing more of a spiritual diservice to them in the process?
