Google Church

google

I’ve been reading a little more in the realm of business and economics lately and I’ve noticed that Google is getting a lot of press.  When I read Simple Church the authors challenged me to look at Yahoo’s home page and then at Google’s home page.  Try it for yourself and then finish reading this entry.

Yahoo’s Home Page

Google’s Home Page

Amazing difference, isn’t it?!  Yahoo provides a lot of information and options, but you leave feeling overwhelmed and cluttered.  Google is far more simple giving you only six choices.  The church, it seems, has become more like Yahoo, full of lots and lots of stuff, options, programs, etc.  Here’s the question for you (so please leave a comment) … If the church were a “Google” church what would be the one (or two or three, but no more please) thing the church would focus on?

  1. Good question. I’ll be interested in the answers.

    Here’s my take.
    1. Glorify God our Father by being what He has made us in Christ. Our collective purpose as the Church is to be to the glory of God our Father.

    “Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever. Amen.
    I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord entreat you to walk in a manner worth of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing forbearance to one another in love being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” (Ephesians 3:20 – 4:3 NASB).

    2. Individually glorify God our Father by being what He has made us. “… to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ should be to the praise of His glory” (Ephesians 1:12 NASB).

  2. 1) Knowing God
    2) Discipleship
    3) Outreach/The Great Commission Combined with Service

    That’s my two cents.
