The last chapter of Darrin Patrick's book Church Planter resonated with some deep desires that I have for our church:
- I would rather be a good preacher in a great church than a great preacher in a good church. If texts like Ephesians 3:10 are true then I want the beauty of the gospel to shine through the church, not just my communication gifts.
- I don't just want a great church. I want a better city.
