Translating Love into Decisions

I recently read a quote from Rick Warren I wanted to share. His thoughts go along with some discussion the Skyline elders recently had about how we inadvertantly turn people away by some of our decisions. For best results, chew slowly!

“A church must choose to grow or not to grow. Many churches have deliberately chosen not to grow. They make that choice in a variety of ways. They make it by the programs they offer. They make it by the amount of time and energy they invest in evangelism. They make the decision by the size of the building they choose to build…. If we really love God and we really love people, then the desire for church growth cannot be optional.” – Rick Warren
