Live Sent


Jason Dukes gets it!
I've just finished reading his wonderful book, Live Sent: You Are a Letter, and found myself saying, "That's so true! Amen brother!" the whole way through.

Dukes, who describes himself as a follower and a leader, a learner and a teacher, a writer and a dreamer, a pastor and an entrepreneur and someone who tries to live sent daily, has captured the heartbeat of what the church ought to be.

Church is not a "what", Duke declares, It is a "WHO!"

Church is not a place and time on Sunday morning. Church is the people of God -- sent into the world as letters of grace.
Church health is not measured by how many people show up on Sunday morning -- but how the people show up to bring God's love everywhere they go.

Dukes advocates a decentralized approach to ministry -- encouraging people to LIVE the mission every day.

This does not mean trying to find time in your schedule to fulfill God's mission -- your WHOLE schedule IS God's mission!

Amen! Yea, somewhere in my stack of journals, I've written on this theme. Sounds like a great read.

AMEN AMEN AMEN

But I think when the people show up to bring God's love everywhere they go you will probably see a growth in the numbers. Because it will become one or the friendliest places to be!!!
