Nurture Spiritual Vitality Wherever You Find It

When we first came to Boston in the 60’s, we had a hard time finding spiritual vitality. All around us were decaying, historic church buildings in which mere handfuls of discouraged believers met. There was little spiritual vitality. Paying the heating bill was often the most pressing issue the deacons faced. It seemed that too many churches were simply trying desperately to survive, and had long since lost a vision for either evangelism or social responsibility.

What Are Your Church's Symptoms?

Last week, I discussed the importance of a church’s immune system. The immune system works to protect the health of a social system. The church may have a number of diseases it’s fighting off that they’re not even aware of! The immune system senses these diseases and sounds an alarm to warn us. But when we hear the alarm go off, warning us that something is threatening the vitality of our church, what do we do?

The Immune System Alarm

“Yikes, Jude, Watch out!”

My wife, Judy, loves driving in the city. Something about weaving in and out of traffic is very relaxing to her, for reasons I can never fathom! But whenever we’re out driving somewhere, I find myself inevitably warning her of impending doom. I seem to have a built-in alarm system! Usually she has already decided how to negotiate the road, but occasionally I’ll see something before she does. When it comes to driving the streets of Boston, it’s helpful to have two pairs of eyes on the road!

Are you a “social system doctor"?

I’ve been seeing my doctor quite a bit lately. Turning 74, the old body is starting to show its age! My doctor is trying to help my body work at its “normal state of being” by trying to remove the hindrances that keep it from functioning at its highest potential. So for me, doing physical therapy removes some of the hindrances of having creaky joints.

Crossing Beyond the Organization Threshold

In our modern culture we are greatly enabled by our organizational skills, but at the same time, are also greatly limited by them. I don’t think I need to say much about the benefit of organization and programs to accomplish multitudes of tasks in our society. Our problem is rather that we know very little about the limitations of organization.
