I saw a post on Twitter yesterday that caught my attention:
I wonder what will change in our city on Monday as a result of tens of thousands of people gathering in our Churches on Sunday?
It’s a good question. One I think every church, every leader, every Christian should be asking themselves.
Are our Sunday morning services really changing our cities?
If we’re willing be honest with ourselves, I think we’d find the answer to be no.
You see, I live in a town of 9,000 people. We have 18 churches, most running anywhere from 50-200 on any given Sunday morning. We have a ministerial association that exists to help churches work together. We have multiple vacation bible schools, church ads in the papers, and some pastors who write religion columns for the local newspaper. We even have a nativity scene on the public square at Christmas time.
