Church can be so much simpler
Today’s the big day for a blog book tour on Dave Browning’s Deliberate Simplicity.
Dave’s clear on the mission of the church, and cuts out the complexity that can so easily distract. The book takes its time to unpack how the church has gotten so complicated, filled with many stories and examples of what happens with this complication. Then proposes a simpler way to be the church, and the basic ingredients (or principles) to have a simple church that’s scalable and shifts the focus towards the people being the ministers. Having met Dave on several occasions, I can see how he lives that out, as he is very approachable like an everyday average Joe; he doesn’t come across domineering dominant as some leaders seem to project that kind of a personality.
