Becoming a Blessed Church: Forming a Church of Spiritual Purpose, Presence and Power
– by N. Graham Standish
On page 11 of this book, Graham Standish writes: “What exactly is a blessed church? It is a glimpse of what a church can be. It is a vision, a glimpse of a healthy church uniquely grounded in a relationship with God that allows blessings to flow through it.”
It has long been my conviction that the extent to which the church keeps its focus on being the church and not the profit making center up the street–to the extent that we do that we live a quality of relationship with God and each other. From meetings to discernment to prayer as a community this book covers many of the topics that can lead to meaning for congregations.
