Thought for today – 10/08/2011

FRUITFUL GOAL
“The goal of moving from decay to restoration is not simply for the church to grow numerically, not simply to have more churches with more people sitting in them. Instead, the goal is to move the church into more fruitful ministry so that the church can transform culture with the love and grace of God. Spiritual transformation gives rise to both personal and societal change.”
– David T. Olson, The American Church in Crisis
