One more milestone

Finished my six-session seminar on "Making Disciples, Growing the Church." I've basically laid it all out for these leaders. No easy answers, but a shared vocabulary with which to discuss the challenges.

There are a lot of things that are very right here, but there's a whole lot that's old and creaky and a bit shabby (and not just talking about the physical plant). And I am determined not to come riding in on my white horse and give them "the Answer"™. No, my aim is to quit patchin' and go to fixin'.

Oh, but it's such an enormous job. All I can do is the little part that I can do. God's gonna have to raise up some other folks to handle the parts I can't get to.
