A movement, not an institution...
Not too long ago, a large and wealthy church here in Richmond launched a single mother ministry. Those who had been divorced, widowed, or alone could find strength from fellowship with one another and experience God's love. After a year, the church evaluated the success of the program, which was growing and quite popular.
Yet, at the end of the staff meeting, the ministry was canned. Why?
Church members were upset their BMW's had to park next to Ford Escorts and the like.
How is that Christ-like?
