The landscape of Christian spirituality in the West is no longer lush with green grass and wild flowers blooming. Instead, across the country we find dry terrain where churches no longer can expect interested seekers. Rather than going back to the boardroom to cook up new techniques for a trendier church, let's ask more meaningfully rooted questions.
Do we know how to be present in our neighborhoods? Do we know how to be present in community? Do we know how to be present to the in-breaking kingdom of God?
There is a growing groundswell discovering that we have become up rooted and detached from each other in the way we express being the church.
We need a subterranean movement that plunges below the surface into a way of being the people of God that carries an unwavering incarnational creed.
