I was terribly saddened with this read. He Michael, tried to show us that we can be of the world and still be of Christ One idea which shocked me was that of surfboard church. A meeting on the beach for surfers so they can attend church and still go surfing after. Or the "mall church" for the men who wont go to traditional church. They get a church service in the mall with prayers and songs and any one can speak a word of advice. Then this group of men would go preach a traditional service for the ladies.
I read it three times to try and glean some ideas from real life stories but I just could not! It did not fit in with my theology . God calls we do not have to spruce up the church to attract people. I did not care for the way it was written either. In Being Church Doing Life: Creating Gospel Communities Where Life Happens, Michael Moynagh explores the practical nature of taking the influence of the gospel into the heart of the culture . True but he did it in his own way.
I leave you with one good note! Communities are God's strategy for individuals to make a difference.” If you want to read get it on line instead of ordering it. Then decide if you really want it
