"Never make it more complicated than loving Jesus, loving others and telling people about Jesus."
Twenty five years ago, as I was starting to explore faith, I joined a little group that was called 'Mustard Seed' that met in a home on the outskirts of Newcastle-upon-tyne. I remember it was run by two dear, patient, Bible-saturated Geordie teachers and they will, to this day, not have a clue that the confused, questioning, hungover buffoon who turned up each week and seemed to understand so very little went to on plant a church. I was reminded of this as I listened to Mark Batterson's talk (which I missed as I had to drive home) on that parable that he gave to New wine leaders recently and also today as I read Ian Paul's post 'What does growth look like?'on the same theme.
