are small missional communities not the idea of Church? is that not we are supposed tot do?
when did it become something else?

Becky Garrison

Thanks for the thoughts - I hope that these communities can celebrate what they bring to the table and not feel pressured to grow - bigger isn't necessarily better. And at least here in the States, we have a market of people hiring themselves out as consultants to the church who either have never run a church or have been out of the scene for so long that they aren't really tuned in to what's happening on the ground. What they have are "ideas" they want to test out as though missional communities are like lab rats. I hope these groups can learn and grow from each other instead of bringing in "experts" to run experiments on them. :)
