[T]he old church scorecard of how many, how often, how much–all bottom-line measures that are calculated in terms of church activity–is counterproductive to participating in the missional renaissance. The old scorecard keeps us church-absorbed. As long as we use it, we will continue to be inward-focused, program-driven, and church-based in our thinking and leadership.
Thanks for this great quote/ reminder. I am currently in a situation that only seems to look at numbers and bottom lines. Makes ministry difficult. Anyway, without giving you my life story let me simply say that this was a great thing to read today. Blessings and feel free to come by my blog sometime as well!
