I read Karl Vater’s blog entry this week and I want to recommend it to you. It is well worth the read. I think that you will find it encouraging. If you can’t read it all, here is a highlight from it.
Neither the big church model or the small church model is always better. Or always worse. Each model has its values and drawbacks.
No one tool in a carpenter’s tool box is right for every job. Jesus, the divine carpenter, has many tools at his disposal.
Sometimes a big church is needed. Sometimes, only a small church will do.
