Anne Jackson re-posted the following post that I haven't tracked all the way through to it's source, but if you're so inclined, go for it. In light of questions and discussions about Calvary Chapel leadership taking place in boardrooms, coffee shops, and the blogosphere, I thought I'd post this interesting tidbit:
institution or movement?
H R Niebuhr suggests the following contrasts between movements and institutions with regard to the church.
Passive and yielding to external influences
Looks to the past
Active, influencing rather than influenced
Looks to the future
So what about, Calvary Chapel? Which are we?
