transforming your church
Currently reading “Transforming your church” by Mark Conner. Not my usual style of book. Theologically I am not really in the same camp as him - though I am at times impressed with the way he deals with the Bible.
However, he poses 7 shifts that need to take place in the church which I agree with so far (having only read the first one).
The first shift is…
A power shift - from self to God
It is a shift from confidence in self to a greater dependence on God can be seen in what our attitude to prayer is. I was rebuked when I realised that whilst I have many people who I respect for their gifts & character, I struggle to think of people who are great model of prayerfulness to me.
I suspect I am not the only one in evangelical circles. I suspect I am not a great model of prayerfulness to others. A power shift needs to happen in evangelical circles. From self to God!
