Seeing Orange

Just got in from the Orange Conference in ATL and wanted to mind dump some of the great things that I learned about ReThinking the Church. Some of the speakers were Reggie Joiner, Sue Miller, Francis Chan, and Donald Miller. Here are some of my thoughts.

  • Have you been saying something the same way for so long that it has become white noise?
  • Things have to change in order to be heard.
  • Are we making it easier or harder for people to turn to God?
  • Are we encouraging a generation to trun to Him?
  • The stakes are too high to not try something new.
  • Let God be as original with you as He was with others. He is the Creator not the Duplicator.
  • We have set the bar so low for our church members.
  • Over 60% of the world lives on less than $2.00 a day. That person starving is Jesus according to Matthew 25. I have to figure out how to feed Him.
  • Don’t get frozen by not trying new things for God.
  • The worst thing you can do is to not live by faith and bury your talent in the sand.
  • Don’t let the church paralyze you from doing new things.
  • Have I actually gone after Jesus so hard that I have told others to follow me as I follow Him?
  • Why are students leaving our churches so quickly? Because they knew about God but they really didn’t believe.
  • Verse to rally behind for students Deut. 30:20
