I’m wondering if there’s not much difference between a normal old business and your normal old church. Maybe it’s supposed to be run with more grace but there is still unfortunately politics, hires and fires, and splits still happen.
Even in the Bible it talks about disagreements and divisions that happened between the first churches. Peter was peeved at Paul so much that they went separate ways.
My point is that maybe we shouldn’t give up on church because we expect it to be perfect.
It’s an organization and that’s how organizations run. Our boss just happens to be the creator of the world and our mission is to help him redeem the world.
