Thoughts from Ed Stetzer, Day 3

March 10 Morning Sessions
  • Tim Chester & Steve Timmis on the church: "We need to be communities of love. And we need to be seen to be communities of love. People need to encounter the church as a network of relationships rather than a meeting you attend or a place you enter...In our experience people are often attracted to the Christian community before they are attracted to the Christian message." (Total Church, p. 59)
  • More from Chester & Timmis on spirituality in community: "A personal relationship with God has all too often become an individual relationship with God." (Total Church, p. 148)
  • Stetzer on the need for small groups/small community: "People are more likely to get on mission with God in a squad than in an army."
