The Purpose Driven Church: A Lenten Study
Part Two of The Purpose Driven Church looks at becoming a Purpose Driven Church. The author looks at what drives your Church, the Foundations for a healthy Church, defining your purposes, organizing around your purposes and applying your purpose.
We have done some of this already at St. James ... defining purpose. Once that is done, however, it is important to communicate the purpose, organize around that and apply those purposes.
I encourage study groups to apply the relevant information to St. James. This week, I am asking the study groups to consider this question:
There are five kinds of Churches listed on page 122. After consideration, what kind of Church are we at St. James?
You may also want to consider the role of the pastor in answering this question.
Add your thoughts here for the other groups, or interested parishioners, to comment on, and develop a conversation.
