If only…

Today I came across the wonderful story of a mega church that decided it was time to stop worrying about buildings and programmes and start concentrating on the people it wanted to serve. This has to be one of the most inspiring things I’ve read in ages.

Hiam [the pastor] is now more aware of his impact on the community and can’t imagine going back. “Someone just yesterday came up to me and said, ‘I don’t have to drive to the church to feel like a Christian anymore. I just have to go out my front door.’ That right there told me we made the right decision.”

I don’t work in a big church, but I’d really like to be able to do what the pastor of that church did. The last paragraph of the piece makes it no less worthy an aspiration.
