What are you looking for in a church? Polished, organized, clean, comfortable? While these are common responses, they fly in the face of the wisdom of the Proverbs that teach us that it's only the unused stable that stays clean.

Healthy, successful churches are actually the ones where the real, messy work of ministry is happening by all the members. How mess-averse are you to church? What unhealthy expectations do you need to let go of? And how can you yoke up more closely to Christ to carry forward the work of His Kingdom? This radical understanding of church could change everything!
