The Sharp Point of the Spear
A great thought by my blogger buddy, Chuck Warnock on launching new efforts in a congregation.
A spear has a sharp point, not a broad blade. Most of the time in churches we think we need a broad blade — lots of people involved in every ministry we start. But, when you really think about it, new ministries mostly are “spear-shaped.” The leading edge of the spear is sharp, pointed, and thin.
