Is what we are doing working?  Are we working for the Kingdom or are we simply perpetuating our little group?  Don't misunderstant me -- I am proud of my heritage, my beliefs, my convictions.  But aren't we supposed to be building the Kingdom?  Yes, we can do that through the local church, but the local church here is either stagnant or declining.  It is time we started looking for a more effective way to reach the world for the Kingdom.  The church is a small part of the the bigger Kingdom.  Maybe we just need to change our definition of "local church" to better reach the lost.

More thoughts to come.  Stay tuned.
