So that Compassion blogging indie rocker Shaun Groves has a sarcastic little blog post about how church leaders in the developing world don’t get it. They’re doing goofy things like feeding the poor, job training and education (“stuff we Christians in America are savvy enough to get politicians and nonprofits to do for us”) and even filling up their church buildings on non-Sundays. That’s crazy.
It’s striking nerves and spreading across Twitter. So Groves followed up with a question: “Now what will you do about it?” He’s gathering responses and plans to share them next week.
I love the idea of churches being more than Sunday and churches doing more than a church service. We should be doing service, not just sitting through a service. How can your church begin to follow the example of leaders in the developing world (or how are you already doing it)?
