can somebody explain Hirsch to me?
February 26, 2009
OK, so I’ve struggled to understand Alan Hirsch ever since I met him. And really, I actually right-out disagreed with him, although I obviously join him in choir singing that the church should become more missional.
But friends promised me that what I’ll find reading the Forgotten Ways will be different from what I found at the seminar, so I’m busy reading it, and thus following Alan online more as well.
So, can somebody please explain to me: What the hell is Alan doing at the mega-churches? Last thing I remember he was talking about something completely the opposite? Not true? Did I miss something? Now suddenly he’s all numbers, success, talking about “infrastructure needed to make movements happen”!
If he can get them more missional, I’m all for it. But I really struggle to understand the link between what he said earlier and what he’s doing now. And if you follow the facebook status updates, this seem like a really big thing for him.
