Just a quick followup to that series of posts from so very long ago.
I read the other day in The Week about the rise of the megachurch. It was really quite interesting (and mercifully brief - The Week's forte.)
I was amused to discover that I probably think the megachurch is about the best idea going. I think I could be at home in one if they would just change one thing. Instead of having a bunch of intimate small groups that revolve around a charismatic leader, they should have a charismatic leader that revolves around, supports, and enables a bunch of small groups.
If the small groups were the center, and they had a decent preacher, I think the pattern would be powerful.
I hate myself for liking something so popular, but there you have it, I guess.
The second thing is that I answered the questions I needed answered when I started writing that series. I feel like I'm getting a handle on my direction for the church. That helps.
When I started this blog, I did it anonymously. I chose to do so out of the usual discomfort, and also because I was not ready for some of my old friends to find me. I needed to have my head on straight first.
After that series, though, I cannot think of any reason to remain anonymous. So, if any of ya'll are ever near Columbus, OH, just look up Kevin Knox in the phone book. I check my voice mail at least twice a month, because that's about how often I use the phone, but I'm home every now and again. You might catch me.
I'd offer a bunch more revelations, but I doubt there's much more I haven't already said.
