i'm preaching next sunday at my church on how to 'be' church as opposed to 'do' church. i found the quote from snyder very challenging and uplifting and will allow it to percolate around my thinking. i've only got a week and i'm a desparately slow reader but i'm going to try and lay hands on the book, so to speak.

Mark Berry

"Church people worry that the world might change the church; Kingdom people work to see the church change the world." Great quote! Thanks!

BTW I'll think of you this week when I'm sat by the Sea re-reading Ryan and Eddie


hey, very powerful - thanks. have you read George Barna's "Revolution" book?

Rich Kirkpatrick

Reform is always in motion due to man's attempt to smash the church in his box. But, it is Reform we need, not revolution like Barna and others have described.

Paul Fromont

Great quote. Thanks for the reminder Jonny.




Thanks Jonny - wonderful timing, for me, reading that quote this morning.


Thanks Jonny. Very apt in light of recent conversations. Came at a great time.


Good stuff Jonny! We need to live the new indentity, just dare to go for it. The best way to get there, is to just go ourselves, and be examples.

Hi Jonny

Years ago my eyes were opened to the message of the Kingdom by a book called "The upside down Kingdom" by Donald Kraybill. I have not been comfortable with institutional church ever since.


Jonny, so true. Thanks for the reminder.
