Success!
Last week I was speaking on 1 Thessalonians 2. The opening line is "our visit was not a failure". When you read the account of the visit in Acts 17 you see a riot, their host put in prison and all sorts of stuff. And yet it was not deemed a failure. Clearly they were not using some of our modern evaluation tools!
Had I read it in time I would have included this quote from Frost and Hirsch:
'the Christendom-mode church is so infected by the spirit of "success"that real connection between people in church is usually quite rare' (The Shaping of things to come,p64)
