Forming Healthy Community in Church on the Go by Michael Rose

I used to believe that before we could reach out to others we had to have our own house (read church) in order. And while this is partially true, the reality remains we will never see our church in perfect order and this being the case, we will never leave the four walls of our community to reach out to others.

Ten Negative Consequences of Separating Gospel Truths from the Kingdom by Joseph Mattera

Truly the greatest discovery I ever made in the Bible was when my eyes were opened to understand how the gospel relates to the Kingdom of God! When this happened in 1995 it was after 17 years of preaching an individualistic gospel that conceptually reduced the gospel to deal only in terms of individual salvation. Missing was the societal and systemic impact the gospel is supposed to have, which is embedded throughout Scripture....
