We have made a commitment to being a Missional Church, reaching into the community and inviting people to come and experience what we are doing. We should have “standing room only” Services every Sunday. There should be a buzz in the Community about LVPC and all the wonderful activities available for most people’s needs and wishes. [emphasis added]
Well. No. This is not “Missional Church.” Not even remotely – though I’m sure the leader who wrote it is a wonderful person – she might want to read a little Newbigin, Guder, Van Gelder, Fitch, Frost, Stetzer, Hirsch et al – or come wander the hallways of Missional Tribe.
Though her paragraph has frightened MT’s little mascot. Poor kitty.
