I’ve been at this missional thing for a while. I confess that it’s not easy. I seem to run in fits and starts. It’s one step forward and two steps back…or three…or four. So I’m always grasping at ways to communicate missional theology and ways to move the church into the community.
Here’s the latest. It’s “The 5/5/50 Rule” from Ben Yoshua-Davis:
I’d like to offer you a way to start connecting with your community that’s easy and simple: no ad council meetings, new budget line items, or hand-holding required. All you have to do is follow a very simple rule: start with something that takes less than five people, takes less than five hours, and costs less than fifty dollars. (Because, in almost any church, you can always five people, five hours, and fifty dollars for something new.)
Get it. 5/5/50.
Easy to communicate.
