i apparently touched a nerve with yesterday’s post. besides the responses you see, i had several e-mails and phone calls from people in situations similar to nick’s. besides the obvious similarities in the comments i received, i discerned an emotional undercurrent (something beyond dissatisfaction…angst? truculence?) that should provoke modern church leaders (to either anxiety or action).
we can no longer tolerate business as usual!
i want to urge young leaders out there (the ones who submitted comments and the ones who did not) to weigh in further. i posed a question to nick, and i’d like to put it forward here for consideration and discussion. i said to nick, “you are obviously disillusioned…what is your major source of disillusionment?”
hey, we’re all sick up and fed with the current state of the church. but have you ever considered why? what is it, specifically, that bothers you? what can be reformed and what is damaged beyond repair?
