Does Traditional Church Need to Be Broken for Folks to Find Abundant Life?

    One of the things which I’ve come to realize as I’ve thought about this issue is that it’s not a numbers game. Not only is it not a numbers game, but Jesus told his followers that they were to be salt and yeast. It only takes a little salt to season the dish and a bit of yeast to make the bread rise. God wins in the end. I think we’re just going through a pruning time in order to bear more good fruit going forward.
