Thursday Three For All

It’s Thursday, kiddies: the day when I roll out a few things I’ve been reading over the past week. Three of ‘em, to be exact. Enjoy. (Remember: click on the bold print to read the entire article.)


Love the Church More Than Its Health. (via Jonathan Leeman, HT Michael Kelley). Ouch. This one slapped me around a bit.

To say that we should love the church more than its health means this: we should love people because they belong to Jesus, not because they have kept the law of a healthy church, even though that law may be good and biblical. It means we should love them because of what Christ has done and declared, not because of what they do.

Six Strategies to Succeed in Portable Church. (via Gavin Adams). This is the third part of a series I mentioned last week. Fantastic, practical suggestions.

Portable church is complex. It’s full of logistical challenges. But great systems can make set up and tear down much less painful. There are a multitude of companies who specialize in providing road gear, cases, and portable church solutions. I’m sure each has their specialties. What’s important is that every portable church has a systematic way to succeed in creating the Sunday experience. Think systems.


A “Choose Your Own Adventure” Story That Plays Out on Twitter. (via Laughing Squid) How many of you remember those from middle school? (Raises hands) How many of you ever wished you could do it on Twitter? (crickets)

Internet consultant Terence Eden recently created a story in the style of classic Choose Your Own Adventure interactive fiction novels that plays out on Twitter. Each step, of which there are 23 total, has its own Twitter account with a tweet that points to two different Twitter accounts–unless of course the player has met a grisly end.
