Since this post is being released on July 4, I have the Beatles floating around in my head:
“You say you want a revolution – we all want to change the world.”

I want to give some thought to that. We do want to change the world. But if we are honest, we realize how naïve that can be.

A vision for the church that is local, organic, and vibrant is a beautiful and needed one. But to think such a vision could ever capture the hearts of more than a few feels impossible. Perhaps it is. But revolution always feels impossible.
