Seven Things

Seven things I wish the church were like from Dan Kimball’s book reading, “They Like Jesus, But Not The Church.”

I wish the church were not just a sermon or lecture but a discussion.
I wish the church would respect my intelligence.
I wish the church were not just about the building.
I wish church were less programmed and allowed time to think and pray.
I wish the church were a loving place.
I wish the church cared for the poor and the environment.
I wish the church taught more about Jesus.

What’s your thoughts?


  1. I think this right on in the world of ideas. Practically applied I am not sure what it looks like. That said I think we are about to experience a burst of growth in church plants because current churches are not going to be able/willing to let go of their traditions to be the church to this next generation.
