He recommends Erwin McManus’s newest book, and his post includes this gem…
Here’s an excerpt that will remain a priceless jewel as long as the established church is stuck in the mire of man-made tradition:
“With insects most of us know that bees are called swarms, and ants are called colonies. Among ocean life, I was aware that whales are pods, and fish are schools. Cattle are herd, birds are flocks, and if you watch Lion King, you know a tribe of lions is a pride. If you grew up in the country, you might know that crows are murders. Maybe the most unnerving one is an ambush of tigers.”
“I was surprised to learn that a group of buzzards waiting around together to feast on leftover carnage is called a committee. Just this one insight is worth the price of the whole book. This explains so much of what’s going on in churches – a lot of committees waiting around to live off human carnage.”

Ken – who has a knack for getting right to the point in some creative ways – ends his post with this…
* The cost of pastoring established, unhealthy churches – 3 years of religious detox.
* The cost of The Barbarian Way by Erwin McManus – $11.55 plus shipping.
* The quote above from the “Resident Alien” – priceless.
