Sometimes we need to highlight the differences between church sizes in order to lead them properly.
“Big churches do something this way, while small churches do it this way” needs to be a regular part of our leadership learning and dialog.
But highlighting those differences should never be done in an ‘Us vs Them’ manner.
We need to learn how to contrast without criticism.
People in almost every other field of endeavor (like cooks, contractors, publishers and scientists) know this. They regularly compare, contrast and utilize different ingredients, tools, fonts and methods to become better at what they do. Leaders within the body of Christ need to have a similar approach to our extra-biblical differences.
