Practical, Relevant, and Loving
on March 21, 2009
Mark took a practical approach to this work. Not too much theological jargon, but enough to give weight where it was needed. When he did delve into theology, he was ready with an appropriate illustration.
It is relevant to all church situations. He doesn't give cookie cutter answers, he challenges some of the traditional assumptions. He even pushes us a little bit to look ourselves in the mirror and to question some of our presuppositions.
He was loving in his approach. He wanted to challenge, encourage, and spur his readers onto rethinking how they do church and connect people - he did so in love. He lovingly says, "It's all about relationships..."
