Why the Church Needs to Stop 'Reaching Out'

Featured BlogHer Network Post

A wise reality check for those seeking full spiritual inclusion:

"Whatever group it is that we think we need to reach out to, they are already attending your church. They’re sitting beside you in the seats. They’re taking communion with you. They’re holding your babies in the nursery. They’re singing on the worship team. They are all around you. We have to stop thinking of groups as being outside of our churches. They might be outside of what your church teaches, but they are still inside of your church. No matter how small your congregation, some 'other' is a part of it."
