Leadership Quote of the Day

As Christians, our beliefs are of fundamental importance-we have and innate need to know that what we are doing has authoritative roots in the revelation of God in Christ and in the Scriptures.  But the process of learning to believe rightly isn’t automatic; it needs to be a deliberate, in-depth engagement with God through the Bible and in relation to context.  This highlights the need for church leadership to be working theologians.  While it’s crucial to let the felt-needs and questions of our native culture to inform our spirituality, if we aren’t deliberate about thinking theologically and systematically about beliefs, then we hand the systems story of the church over to pop culture, mere pragmatism, or the many other prevailing forces that simply co-opt our thinking and doing. -Alan Hirsch and Dave Ferguson, On the Verge, 151-152
