I often look around church on any given Sunday and sadly wonder where everyone has gone. With the connected “do-it-yourself” culture, who needs church when we can find whatever Christian message suits our needs at the push of a button?
Imagine the possibilities if we, the church, shifted our focus from “Where is everyone” to seeking ways to reach out to the broken and needy. Perhaps now is the time for us to focus on providing a gathering place where love, kindness, tolerance and generosity are unconditional.
We can’t do it all by ourselves. Who needs church? We all do.
