Reviews - What do customers think about Inclusion: Making Room for Grace?
Including Others Mar 26, 2005
Most Christians say that they want to reach out and include more people in their church. But, how? According to Eric Law, a crucial step is to identify the "fear zone," and the "safe zone" from which your local church functions. The next step is to expand your congregation's "grace margin", so that it is large enough to truly welcome people that are considering joining your church.
I was especially moved by the first few chapters of the book which focus on our human tendancy to exclude others. "Exclusion is simple. Once we reject the others, we don't have do deal with them anymore. ... Inclusion involves a great deal of thinking and listening ..."
Anyone genuinely interested in church growth should read this book.
