I haven’t visited Church Marketing Sucks in a while (I love that name!!) and came across their link to this great story on Rob Bell in the Detroit Free Press. I’ve been loading Rob’s sermons on my iPod and his preaching has been a breath of fresh air. I love this quote when he’s been asked on his strategy of church growth:
"My theory of church growth is simple," said Bell, leaning across the table to deliver the coup de grace. "People drive a long way to see a fire."
People are attracted first by the smoke – and then come hoping there’s fire. Mars Hill burns white hot. Check them out here.
