I was reading some highlights from the Q Conference in Atlanta and read this:

The mysterious and anti-just-about-anything Rob Bell led Q attendees in a meaning-filled time of communion on Thursday night. I really appreciated his rhetorical question that asked “If [y]our church was removed from [y]our community, who would protest?” Pow!

That’s a pretty interesting thought. If North Side left Greenwood, if we ceased to exist, would anyone in this city be devastated? Would there be people in this community – outside our church members – that would say something good and beautiful in this town is good? We have to be a light. We have to make a difference. We have to leave this place different than when we found it.
