ooze articles

January 29, 2003

As Kay & I pray about starting a home group, these two ooze articles have been good for me:

On house churches:
Transformation is a slow, steady process that occurs as we share life with people, and a house church environment is much more conducive to this phenomenon. Many churches celebrate the idea that people show up and consume their sermons, songs and ministries. But consumption is not transformative!

On postmodern leadership:
One of the first things we need to do as a postmodern narrator is to let people function, and not just "give" them a function. This means you need to help people find their calling, their gifts and let them develop that call and gift to best serve God, themselves and the community.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.
