A guest post from Karl Vaters, who writes on the power of small churches for Christianity Today:
This is good material for reading and prayer, whether you're a pastor or the average church member in an average (read "30 people or less") flock.
How does it hit you? Do you see the grace of God in these words, for pastors and for all those looking for hope and God's love in this world? How would you go outside your home with these words? What does this inspire you to pray for? To do?
