Bill Taylor at the Harvard Business Review always has a habit of asking uncomfortable questions. Here is a message, challenge and question he threw out for business. I've ammended it to make it relevant for churches.
Real Message: If your community can live without you, they eventually will.
Big Challenge: If you do church the way everybody else does church, you'll never do any better.
Urgent Question: If your church disappeared tomorrow, would anybody notice?
Uncomfortable anyone? I am.
