Leadership / Numbers

Hi! I am amazed at the way churches and denominations are seeking to be more business-like while business is seeking to be more "spiritual." (SpiritLinking Leadership, Markham).

Additionally, we need to know that we are not a business. In a business, we can throw defective widgets out and continue to sell good widgets. In a church, our widgets are people and their salvation. Which widget-person should be thrown out so that our bottom-line is more effective? And how do we advocate for the widget-person that nobody cares about if all we are concerned with is "vital congregations" and turning our attention inward?

Aaah, I could go on. Thank you for the thoughts.
