Success pt 2
Further to the ealier post - one of the reasons I was thinking about this is that I have spoken to several churches who had lost sight of the good work they were already doing.
For example with one church when we listed all the great youth stuff that was happening they were amazed! It might not be big or spectatcular or even innovative but it was valuable Kingdom stuff.
Seems like maybe one of the reasons they felt like they had a problem is because they didn't define what they were doing as succesful. Sure sometimes mission gives us an awareness of the needs around us that may make us see our own shortfalls. That can be healthy. But we can sometimes get so caught up in what we're not doing that we forget good stuff already going on.
