Irrelevant Church

May 22, 2006

Phil Cook offers an insightful view on the misguided, never-ending quest of the American church to be relevant. The missional church IS relational. Relationships. The WORD became flesh and dwelt among us. Incarnation. Jesus did not get caught up in worshiping the idol of RELEVANCE.

I have been thinking a lot lately about this phrase from the Gospel of John…THE WORD BECAME FLESH. I wonder how the Gospel would look to our neighbors and our enemies if we (the Church) would be less caught up with Words being used as ammunition and judgement…Words that are put together to defend our rights…and allow the Word to become flesh. If it is to do so…it must become flesh in us…in me.

Presence.
Patience.
Endurance.
Humility.
Love.
Listening.
Long-suffering.
