What if the real measure of a church is:
Not size, but surrender to God;
Not coolness, but compassion;
Not preaching, but participation;
Not programs, but the power and Presence of God;
Not bragging, but brokenness;
Not the offering, but obedience;
Not teaching, but tenderness;
Not tradition, but transformation;
Not respect, but repentance?
