Organic Church

Cool title for a book, isn't it? I'm reading it now, and no, it's not about the "green" movement in churches. It's about churches growing. It's about church being about what it's SUPPOSED to be about...people...loving people, being Christ in the world. A church multiplication movement, not a "how big can we make this group of people" movement. It's about small clusters of people telling people about Jesus, loving and serving each other and those people in society that get ignored...and telling THEM about Jesus....and then people in those little groups answering the call that God puts in their heart to start another small group of people that love each other and tell others about Jesus who tell others about Jesus who serve each other and love people they don't know who don't look like them or smell like them....and tell them about Jesus. It's an exponential church growth movement. Not just starting one church and focusing on "launch" and programs and music and speaker systems and what kind of chairs....blahblahblah. It's about growing a group of loving Christians who create other growing groups of Christians. Sound familiar? Maybe you heard it here:

"Go therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age." the book written by Mattew 28. 19-20.
