Normally, I wouldn’t post twice

Normally, I wouldn’t post twice in one day, but Todd Hunter posted something really cool on his blog ( He writes, “I could not and still can not read the statistics people like Barna, Gallop and the sociologists of religion give us, know what I know from the insides of denominations, etc. and not HAVE to do something about it; my conscience constrains me! Not because I am down on the church, quite the opposite, I am up on her future. I just want to help shape and form that future, to re-shape our imagination about ‘church.'”

I don’t have much to say other than, “Yes!! That’s exactly how I feel.” I’ve never been down on the church. I love the church. I am who I am today because of God, who is alive through his people. And in my love for the church, I’m excited about her future and what she will accomplish. I want to be part of that future and if God allows, I want to help stir a new imagination for what the church can be and do where God has placed me.
