Let’s say you’re a well-established church in…oh, let’s say you’re in Texas. You have four full-time pastors (all Princeton Seminary grads, of course!), a crackerjack staff, and a dedicated laity of 2,700 or so. You reach a lot of people through your three Sunday morning services, and ten to fifteen thousand more by having your 11:00 a.m. service broadcast on a local classical music radio station. Overall, you’re doing fine. Still, you’re hankering for a broader range because…well, because the Gospel of Jesus, the Christ, lives and breathes in you, runs through your veins, and you just can’t help but want to share it! What would you do?

"The Hebrew Scriptures are alive and well today," says the Reverend Dr. Kim Nelson, pastor of Northminster Presbyterian Church in Salinas, California. "If we’re going to be serious about what it means to believe in the living God, God of the past, present, and future, we need to take a look at what that means for our lives, at what we do with that."

My Pastor can beat up Your Pastor
