David Wells quote #2

"[T]his transformation of Christianity into entertainment, is rapidly becoming the norm today, not the exception. Pastors are straining to outdo each other in becoming as chic and slick as any show in Las Vegas" (p. 24).

This is a quote from author/theologian David Wells. It's a challenge to me, that I should remember that I am not an entertainment professional, but a preacher of the Gospel.

What do you look for in a church? Entertainment? Things for you? Or the opportunity to serve? Is church about you or about God?

Moving toward the Horizon,
Doug
