If you’ve known me for very long, you’ve probably heard me say something like, “If Jesus has promised to be in the midst of as few as two or three, then I believe it’s better for Jesus to be in a 100 places among 10 than only one place among a 1000.” My point is this: if we are serious about introducing the world to our Lord, we have to take His incarnational message to it. We need to plant communities of disciples; people among whom Jesus has come to dwell — a church planting movement that leaves behind it disciple-making communities. To do that, we have to be mobile, lithe and limber. We can’t be burdened by property and payrolls. Shane Claiborne speaks to that idea in an interview:
