He wouldn’t do it, so I had to. The title, that is. My friend and fellow Missional Tribe elder, Brother Maynard has riffed off of Keller, Fitch’s and my contribution to the conversation begun around Kimball’s Missional Misgivings. (I’ve decided I’m only misgiving this Christmas, actually.)
Here’s a small part of what BroMayn says in his post titled, What’s a Megachurch to Do?,
I remain convinced the megachurch is generally an unhelpful model for the road ahead. In addition to being generally less efficient with resources than smaller expressions of the local church (by any model), I tend to think that they foster a form of complacency among many members, isolating and insulating them from the culture around them rather than encouraging direct engagement. Passivity is the byproduct, and yes, these are some rather sweeping generalizations.
I should note that Scot McKnight’s makes a brief comment about the conversation in his Weekly Meanderings post from much earlier this morning. Thanks for the link love, Scot.
I have another post to put up on this topic tentatively called Discipleship vs Consumerism. It exists in Novamind Mindmap form right now. Your welcome to have a look at it, if you’d like. God willing and the Don River don’t rise, I hope to have it up on Monday morning. (This week got away from me.)
And. As I’ve mentioned on Twitter a lot of late, I love Novamind.
