Tonight myself and the girls went to an evening with Deb and Alan Hirsch. This post is done on the iPhone so sorry about the quality. I've just jotted down the main points.
Sevice based. Can do. We can do ideas.
Rather cynical, what you see is what you get. Authentic but a little bit rude.
A lot more competition with Australian Churches.
A negative spirit in the church, within Australia.
Warning against missional liberalism. (would have liked to have seen this unpacked a bit)
A synergy happening with larger churches and new missional thinking.
US will be where western church is turned around.
There were a lot more points, but these got me pondering.
