Tuesday morning evangelistic smack-down
1. Church planting is the "extreme sport of ministry." (Ron Sylvia, author of "Starting High Definition Churches”) Pic above! Woo-hoo! HT: Epic.
2. Quote: "Evangelism without social action is like a body without a soul. Social action without evangelism is like a soul without a body. One is a corpse and the other is a ghost, and we don’t want either one." (E. Stanley Jones)
3. The “emerging church” (that wants to be so Christocentric) so far is missing out on what should be their major resource - Methodist missionary E. Stanley Jones. Start with “The Christ of the Indian Road.” Get it from your favorite used books list. And then keep reading. There are thirty-plus Christocentric Jones books to choose from.
5. Since "the list" of the 50 most influential churches has come out, which church in your region would Jesus say was most influential? Why would it be chosen?
