Missional “in quotes”

Not only do we not need God to explain the universe, we don't need God to operate the church. Many operate like giant machines, with church leaders serving as mechanics. God doesn't have to show up to get done what's being done.
Reggie McNeal, The Present Future, p. 6

Too often the church operates on a human level. We act as if everything depends upon us. We too easily forget that it is God's mission, not ours. He has invited us to participate in his mission, but it is his responsibility to accomplish it. When we rely on our puny plans and our restricted resources, we put the church in a box, one that resembles a coffin.
