Last week at the staff retreat at Mission Springs, one of the participants quipped: “If we heard an adult say that they are not GETTING fed in any other setting than the church, we’d consider them foolish (he used a stronger word).” If my adult children complained that they were not GETTING fed, I’d say “Learn to cook! Find out how to use a fork and knife! Grow up.”
Is part of the problem in the established church the very fact that we have tolerated this kind of thinking and excusing? How are we teaching believers to feed themselves? to move from consuming to generativity?
