Right About That
It comes as a jolt to some folks, but it is true. You do not need to go to seminary to follow Jesus, to draw close to Him.Put that starkly, I really truly begin to think that we need "lay leadership" in the church more than we may ever know. People seem "peak" in spiritual development at the point where they are not ready to go into "professional ministry." That's because the mentors and leaders have followed that path.
What if we held people up - put people in front who followed a different path. Not just ordained staff, but serious Christians doing life seriously? You can't lead someone somewhere you have not been.
