Ouch, ouch, and ha! That was my reaction to reading a recent diatribe about church growth from one website. His initial thought was:

If church sucks, people don’t invite others. They don’t think “Man, my friends have got to be here for this!” They think “Well, I might as well keep going here.”

Included in his list are things like:

  • Stop preaching crappy sermons.
  • Quit acting like such a fruit up there.
  • They’re supposed to be announcements, not Chinese water torture.

I think the list could also be titled “Church Growth Thoughts from the Pews.” I know of several folks in our group who would be that honest. Thanks to Todd for first mentioning it.

On this day...
