A couple of years ago I walked away from a Lutheran church that was dabbling heavily in evangelicalism in favor of one down the road that is strongly liturgical. The senior pastor of the more contemporary church would preach sermon series from time to time based on books by evangelical authors he liked. One of his favorites was Tim Keller, a Presbyterian minister who is also a prolific writer of books on such topics as how churches should interact with the culture in a western, post-Christian society.
The pastor posted the following Tim Keller essay on the church’s blog last fall entitled, “The Missional Church.” [ATTACH]19227[/ATTACH] I was hoping those of you who are a lot smarter than I am could comment on the attachment from a Catholic perspective. Keller espouses, in a nutshell, that the church must change radically to attract and accommodate new believers. Perhaps the missional church is just a new name for seeker friendly? :shrug:
