This is a really good post.
Pastor Mark Driscoll had a really bad attendance at Mars Hill Church, a mega church in Seattle. He is a edgy young pastor, with a influential ministry. He writes on his church blog about a recent service when it snowed heavily in Seattle (you may have seen it on the news) and it affected attendance negatively….
“I preached to 80 people at the first service in a room that seats 1300, and the best attended of the four services today was about 250 people…..”
He has some pretty frank things to say… (Driscoll frank? Who would have thought!)
“Those who see it as a job are the first to call in and cancel their duties, not show up, dog it, or leave early. Those who see their service at Mars Hill as a calling go beyond the call of duty to cover for everyone else”
