Quote of Note #130: Hungering for the Living God

“I often ask myself the question of when and why we pastors began to believe that our primary calling was to build the church. How did we come to believe that the people we encounter are primarily in the market for a church? How did we forget that they are probably more in the market for an experience of, and ultimately an ongoing relationship with, the living God.”
