What if the church could be more than a building or a meeting once or twice a week? What would happen if the church lived and loved as a community where people mattered more than programs and servants were more valued than leaders? How would the world be changed by a church that looked like that? This book looks at the past influence of the church in American culture and is hopeful that it will be influential again. It expresses that missing link between just making noise and truly impacting culture. Love is our motivation to reach out to the world in multiple ways, and receiving love will give people a reason to pay attention. By expressing love, we bring life to ourselves, our friends, and the world around us. This examination of truth and love will examine various ways which will reach out to the people around us with various levels of effectiveness. It exposes some of the pitfalls in our current approaches to church and being the church in the world. Truth shows us how to love, love shows us why we need truth, and the two together bring life more abundantly. Robb Myers was born in raised in Fairbanks, Alaska.
