Snippet from 'The Fine Line: Re-envisioning the Gap Between Christ and Culture' that really sat with me.
"Relevance is a tricky thing. We can't self-profess our way into it; we have to earn it. Relevance is something others believe about us, not what we believe about ourselves.
"Putting "relevant" on a banner or business card is a trendy thing to do these days. But it's nothing more than a slogan until others grant us this attribute. A church can say it is relevant and even believe it's relevant. But unless the surrounding community believes this, that church isn't relevant."
I'm six chapters in and I'm enjoying the read quite a bit, very fluid and concise.
