Today I had the opportunity to hear Erwin McManus speak at a conference here in Chicago. If you’ve never heard or read his books before, you need to! I love his passion!

He said something today that really resonated with me:

“The church is not about us – we ARE the church and we are here for the world.”

Love it!!! It all goes back to how church is not all about US or what WE want. Great reminder….

In his last book, The Barbarian Way, he writes this:

“The greatest enemy to the movement of Jesus Christ is Christianity.”

Ouch. Dangit. Just think about that one for a second…
