1. Missional Discipleship Cannot Be Microwaved
"For as much as it challenges our patience, efficiency and need-for-speed, we should never detach from a communal orientation in order to fast-track discipleship."
"I'm just starting to adjust to people being unimpressed and even a bit turned off."
"No longer am I trying to launch an organization that sparkles before its consumers."
"Posing eventually causes us to unconsciously distance from certain people and
subsequently dilute the quality of our community."
"We need more leaders to break their starry-eyed relationship with Big Christian movements and go subterranean with building for the Kingdom of God."
"I began to ask the question how does leadership function in a land where
old maps no longer work?"
7. Becoming a Community Diagnostician
"The disarming reality around fostering community is the ever present
vulnerability and fragility of it."
"Walking through the book over the last month I’ve felt like I’ve had a conversation with someone who has taken difficult risks to pioneer for the sake of God's in-breaking Kingdom."
9. Inorganic Church Practices
"The pursuit of doing things in culturally "big" ways has had unintended consequences on the DNA of average Christians."
"God is not obsessed with us being right as much as we are. Actually he’s quite passionate about something else entirely, what we hunger and thirst for.”
