An Alternative Model

In a previous post, I presented my depiction of the typical mental model used by most Evangelical church leaders.

Today I offer an alternative model. This model is not perfect or even refined. It is simply a beginning point for discussion. Please let me know if you have any comments, critiques or suggestions for improvement.

A helpful mental image for me has been a young son "helping" his dad mow the grass with his toy mower.

Thanks for your comment. The one problem with the mowing analogy is that the son's "help" is only pretend.

The mystery here is that, while God does the real work, our contribution is significant as well.

I don't know how that works.
