"The church was never meant to be a noun. And when it turns into a noun, it becomes a turn-off. The church was meant to be a verb, an action verb... In fact the last week of His life is called "Passion Week." So regardless of personality type, His followers ought to be the most passionate people on the planet" (from Mark Batterson's "All In", p. 50). As the church of Christ are we ready to look beyond the burdens of this life and live out the mission God wants us to be passionate about? Story of Joshua Chamberlain. Story of Joshua and Caleb (not playing it safe or shrinking back in fear).
