Starting to think about Gospel Centred Church

Gospel Centred ChurchWe start tonight our 2010 sessions by looking at the introduction and first two chapters of Gospel Centred Church.  As discussed, please go through the material and answer the Bible study and discussion questions for yourselves before the session.

A few questions to mull over as you come to the session and/or to serve as an inspiration for putting your thoughts down as comments to this post:

  • To what degree do you feel the negative images of the church characterised in the introduction (fossils, tortoises, spluttering candle, cosy club) are justified?
  • How might our lives change if we saw ourselves as missionaries (see the ‘ideas for action’ section at the end of chapter 1)? How might Passion Fruit change?
  • How can we encourage each other more to be witnesses for Christ?

  1. By the way, I found this post by one of the book’s authors pretty thought-provoking. http://timchester.wordpress.com/2008/09/21/attractional-church-verses-missional-church/
