Joel’s post yesterday was super. It was courageous and thought provoking. The comments to his post were well written, great, and appreciated.
I’d like to share a few thoughts concerning yesterday’s dialogue. I will end with a simple question that I hope with solicit more ideas, experiences, and thoughts.
First, let’s strive to eradicate using the word “targets” when we are discussing reaching a certain people group. Enough said.
Next, “like reaching like,” “birds of a feather flock together,” and “you reach who you are” seem obvious. Yet, there are cells and cell churches around the world who are reaching a myriad/variety of people groups. They are worshipping God in the same cell gathering and cell church. How can this be so?
I believe there are three reasons. First, the various people groups sense authenticity in leaders and members. This reinforces this life lesson: Be who you are, no one else is more qualified. Second, love abounds. Finally, (and certainly the most important reason) this cell and/or cell church has paved the way through intercession and prayer.
Now, my question. Does your cell and/or cell church have an intentional strategy to reach a certain people group? This blog community would love to hear from you. Please comment.
