Unless a Grain of Wheat Falls: The Church in 25 years » gathering in light – “Do not go gentle into that good night.”

church / culture / ministry

My sense about the future is that the church, whatever is left of it in 25 years, will be built around a kind of nebulous, decentralized participation in God’s mission. I imagine there will be a lot less full-time CEO pastors and more people who see themselves as co-cultivators of kingdom imaginations. People who band together in a world where there is little money, time or space for full-time ministry to embody this call.
