Most Small Churches are struggling.
We struggle to pay the bills, we struggle to recruit volunteers, we struggle with inadequate or non-existent facilities, we struggle to open the front door wider and close the back door tighter.
Most of these struggles are unavoidable. They’re just the cost of doing Small Church.
There’s one struggle we can lay aside if we choose to, though. The struggle to be something we aren’t.
We no longer need to live up to someone else’s expectations or, worse, to our own unreasonable, unbiblical expectations.
Yes, fellow would-be grasshoppers, there are giants in the land. Giant churches with giant budgets, casting giant shadows.
But these giants are not our enemies. To use another biblical example, they are not Goliath to our David.
