Excerpted from a post by Alan Hartung:

Established church pastors, denominational heads, other “leaders” need a conversation about what’s going on. They need to dialogue with many from different perspectives and in so doing find what God is doing in the varied parts of the body of Christ.

The Church, as a whole, however, needs a movement. There are too many people who can give a rip about the weighty philosophy thrown around, they just know the established church is broken, and they fear there is no place for their faith. They need a movement of people doing something rather than engaging in a conversation. The Church needs a movement.

The distinction Alan makes is a good one — the average churchgoer isn’t looking for quite the same thing here as the average church leader.
