I believe the future of the church is a rooted one; one that submerges itself in community, in neighborhoods, and in focused faithfulness. The recovery of a rooted church will collide with real leaders, trained in real “success” strategies that have formed real personal images of being significant. Everything about rootedness will collide with our inner dependency on versions of success built on personality, expediency, and efficiency. When pressing into the future of the church our own leadership habits must go through a maximum dynamic pressure. Maximum dynamic pressure is what a space shuttle goes through at the point it punches through the atmosphere. The integrity of the shuttle is taxed, exposing the craftsmanship and character of its construction.
