Growing Deeper in our Church Communities: 50 ideas for Connection in a Disconnected Age[Kindle Edition]
C. Christopher Smith (Author)

GROWING DEEPER offers: “fantastic practical ideas that most local churches can do to help connection and fellowship.” – Scot McKnight

A significant part of our connection as churches to people, place and mission is the realization that the life together of our church community must flow through every hour of every day throughout the week, whether we are physically gathered together or not.

As a result of the individualism of our age, there is a great temptation to see our churches as religious communities, whose work is primarily concerned with spiritual matters, and is in contrast to the physical world in which we work and feed and cover ourselves. This dualistic temptation is one that we must resist with every fiber of our being! Part of our growing deeper together as church communities is the task of finding ways to embody the wisdom of God as the church in all facets of life. Thus, a church should care about how its members and neighbors are fed and housed and employed.

I believe that these fundamental economic realities are the soil in which deeper connections with people, place and mission start to take root, and the ideas here are aimed at spurring our imaginations in this direction.
