Sometimes I see that our church falls into doing what is “good enough” rather than trying to do our best.
I understand that just because we have less people to draw from we may not have the same quality of talent in some areas of the church ministries. Yet this should never be an excuse to do less than our best. We can still practice hard, plan well, and keep learning and improving.
We have begun doing evaluations of all our ministries. One of the reasons in my mind is because I see a number of places where we are satisfied with “good enough” when it wouldn’t take much work to do our best! I’m hoping we can push things in the right direction with some discussion and rethinking of what we are doing.
Small Church should also be equivalent to “Excellence”.
