It's been a moderate winter, here in Kentucky.
I was reading the story of Jesus cleansing the temple of the money-changers, in preparation for His passion week, and for some reason was struck by how this story is misused.
God has really used Kentucky to un-learn me of a lot of the "hot" early-1990s church growth / outreach myths I was taught back at seminary. These are good to remember wherever we think to start or grow a church:
It interests me that Agabus the Christian prophet never used his spiritual gift to tell anyone what to do.
