At Annual Conference, a gathering of clergy and laity from the Baltimore Washington region, we were graced with Rev. Adam Hamilton's leadership and teaching. He raised several questions for us to ponder and referenced his book Leading Beyond the Walls.
After reading the book, for a second time, I rediscovered 4 questions, which we as the Church must wrestle and answer. Here are the four questions. I am interested in your response and answers.
1. Why do people need Christ?
2. Why do people need the Church?
3. Why do people need our particular Church?
4. To whom does our Church belong?
I am really interested in your answers and then I will add mine.
