“The art of beginning a church is the art of witnessing, following-up and gathering sheep together” How to Start a Church (2005)
I remember hearing some time ago that
Religion is present in everything - from the business signs, to the names of the buses, so I guess I shouldn't have been surprised to see a book(let) entitled " How to Start Your Church"! I had been seeing this little booklet in my gas station supermarket for weeks. The first couple of times I saw it, I smiled and wondered who would buy such a book - little did I know. After a while my curiosity started to get the better of me. Not for the life of me could I figure what the contents could be. Then yesterday just said, ok, now I really need to read what’s inside. No, not because I have a desire to start my own, but I really had to see what this religious DYI booklet could actually advise. Rather than being hilarious - as I must honestly say I expected it to be - it was quite down to earth, and with a couple good lessons that many of these self-proclaimed evangelists should take heed of, touching on everything from finances to faith.
Curiosity satisfied, have given it to one of my colleagues who is a reverend in his church. Not sure if he is ready to break away and start his own yet, but who knows, may come in handy for him someday.
