For those of you who don't know, Lark News is one of the best things in the Christian universe. It is a satirical newsletter that pokes fun at the craziness of American Christianity.
I'm not sure how I missed this article before, but it's great. It underscores something that I see more and more in the church: we want to jump on a new move of God, and break off the shackles of "traditional" Christianity. Then we create an institution around what we believe is God is doing. If you want examples, look at all the "new" ways people are doing church: purpose-driven, seeker-sensitive, emergent, house church. Each group is convinced they've got a corner on God, and the other groups are missing the boat. And each group is busy building a kingdom for God.
Lord, have mercy on us all!
