the issue isn't leadership, it's discipleship
Conspire: to breathe together.
Discipleship is conspiracy — lives “breathed together.”
I like this. I like this much.
Helpful analogy based on that term – thanks Bill!
It strikes me that one problem is that churches often discipleship as a closed community instead of being able to “breathe together” out in the open, where there’s interaction with everyday people in all kinds of settings, so it’s always real and fresh.
We’ve too often acted as if we’re all on a glory-bound jet together, with a captain and stewards taking care of our every need … and we’re all just sitting there, breathing recirculated air. And we all know how “healthy” that is, right? That’s a totally different kind of conspiracy, eh?
The bad breath analogies are just dying to be used.
Well, After that comment. I’m off to brush my teeth and tongue.
Disciples who sing together: even more conspiratorial.
