"I hope one day as a church, we look back on this day and say, 'That was the day we decided to be a different sort of church - one that buys property to share with the commmunity instead of simply buying more for ourselves, one that believes that being the church happens primarily outside the walls of our building, one that wants to match every dollar spent on ourselves with a dollar spent to serve our community, one that meets people where they are instead of expecting them to come to us, one that wants to be known as loving others the way we love ourselves.'
I don’t know that all of those things will ever materialize as much as I long to see it happen. But if we fail, I’d rather fail in pursuing those goals than to never attempt something great for God. I couldn’t have been happier to see the largest gathering ever at a business meeting for the church, coupled with thoughtful insightful questions leading to an enthusiastic unanimous agreement about our direction. I will remember this day for a long time. God be our help!"
