From the Transforming Church website:
Be the Change. A movement is growing in this country to bring the twenty-first century church back to its first century roots. New models of ministry are emerging to create an ancient/modern church. Discipleship is replacing membership, and gift-based ministry teams are replacing committees. TransformingChurch.com is a part of that movement.
I once mentioned that I don’t believe in committees in sermon. I said I believe in ministries. People thought I had lost my marbles. Yet, I truly believe we need to do exactly this type of reframing in our UU context that Transforming Church is talking about.
