What models and methods are we clinging to that make the basic functions of the church harder than they should be?
Serving Jesus isn’t supposed to be easy. Christ told us we had to take up our cross daily. But Jesus made the gospel as accessible as possible. Too easy, according to the Pharisees.
I was reminded of this reality recently during – of all things – a battle with a stubborn hotel room ironing board.
Like that ironing board, the church often makes some of the simplest tasks much harder than they need to be.
