Getting on the Balcony...

Part of what many of us who have been critical of CTA have been raising are the questions that our leaders failed to ask. In essence, they only addressed 1/2 of the issue of church vitality, examining why churches are vital but never fully attempting to answer the question of why they aren't. Likewise, there is very little attempt to look at the common shared values, which Heifetz sees as crucial for adaptive leadership. Focusing on practices without consider values ultimately leads to a disconnect that may be doomed to fail.

Alt Jesus

"Christians in America are no longer people of faith, we’re people of fear. Instead of truly putting our trust, faith, and reliance upon the Way, teachings, and example of Jesus, we put our actual faith in guns, our obscenely over-funded military, and in strong-man  authoritarian leaders."

– Rev. Roger Wolsey, a United Methodist pastor and author, in his blog post, "O We of Little Faith," on Patheos.com
