Out of town this weekend, I followed my host to attend a different church Sunday morning. Unlike a casual visitor, I listened to what was not said as much as what was said. I'm interested in seeing if a church gets it right or not. Do they adhere to Scriptural principles or practice changing tradition and popular trends? The church was nice and clean with plenty of friendly people to fill the large sanctuary. The choir and orchestra were great, the sermon good and it appeared to be a good choice for my friend to call his church home. There was one thing, however, that got my attention.
The last thing mentioned before leaving was the evening break-out meetings after the Sunday night service. The pastor called them "D" groups and invited anyone to join and volunteers to teach small group sessions. It appears the over and mis-used word, "Discipleship," was avoided and I can't blame him for that. Maybe we should start using the letter "S" to avoid mentioning the word sin out loud.
Thank You, God, for the clear teaching of Scripture on making disciples.
