Why I Love My Disappointing Church

Ran across this article and wanted to pass it on to you.  Probably one of the most balanced and mature insights into the realities of what church membership really means.  He notes that the difference in those who seem not to be disappointed and those who are is in the level of involvement. He writes:

So, the best way to avoid finding yourself in a disappointing church is to limit your involvement.
Only go to worship.
Don't volunteer.
Be friendly, but don't make friends. 
Sing, clap and give a little money.
Stay at the edges.
You have probably noticed, if you compare worship attendance with the totality of those showing up for anything else, that many Americans have already figured this out.

The rest of the article is good and ought to be read by all church leaders, pastors and lay.
