A couple of one-liners from Leonard Sweet yesterday:
- Excellence is one of those metaphors that’s killing the church.
- Every church is built from the sound up. (The problem with the church today is that we don’t have a sound theology.)
- Interactive Excellence: it’s no longer about the quality of the performance, it’s about the quality of participation.
- The fundamental modern heresy is that it’s the trees that move the wind.
- Planet Earth is the garden of the galaxy.
- Christians are not conservationists, they’re preservationists.
- Amending a Red Green motto: “I’m a church… but I can change. If I have to… I guess.
- There are three requirements for change to take place:
- Change requires Reframing
- Change requires Big Dreams
- Change requires Emotional Engagement
Hopefully we’ll unpack some of this in the coming days; more to follow.
