BOOR March 2011: The Perpetuity Problem

A longer article, but well worth your time:  The Perpetuity Problem by Skye Jethani

Here are some highlight quotes:

"Many in ministry have come to believe that if something lasts, if it continues even after we have stepped away, then it can be considered a success."

"The ministry is not assessed by how faithful God’s people were or even by the fruit exhibited, but by its ability to continue."

"Can you let go today? If your church or ministry endures for a few years and then dissolves, how would you feel?"

And the best quote in the article:
"Is it possible that we care a great deal about perpetuity because we aren’t just building God’s kingdom but our own?"
