Thoughts about church fights and an update on the latest recap of AMC’s The Walking Dead. A cover of the Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash.
This episode came to mind after a conversation with my sister and a pastor friend that are both going through something in there churches, respectively. Here are some of the things I have learned.
There will always be some level of conflict whenever human beings gather, so expect it in the church too. I didn’t and it hurt me. The pastor should be the head of the church. If the deacons are fighting the pastor they are out of order. Anything with more than one head is a monster.
I’d like to hear if you have a story or a comment about this subject. 301-828-1414.
Thought for today: Dying churches spend their energy fighting each other and fighting change.
Growing churches spend their energy fighting for new opportunities to reach un-churched people and speaking up for the change that will impact their lives.
