We don’t need you

September 6, 2008

That’s the message a good friend of mine has gotten (or at least perceived) from his church for some time now.  Each time I listen to him speak, hear his heart, I am challenged and heart broken for the plight of the larger churches that deal with this reality. 

Should a church be able to plug every one into a meaningful role, supported and empowered to serve in their gifting?  Is it possible?  And if not, can we empower them to live out their passion and gifting somewhere other than the church? 

The truth is, whether or not a church makes you feel it or not, we are all needed, in the body of Christ.  God really does have roles and plans for us in our homes, in our jobs, and at our schools.
