Reflect for a moment on the following words written by the late Martin Thornton :
“A walloping great congregation is fine and fun, but what most
communities really need is a couple of saints. The tragedy is
that they may well be there in embryo, waiting to be discovered,
waiting for sound training, waiting to be emancipated from
the cult of the mediocre.”
Gordon MacDonald has been thinking through these words, and offers some insights of his own in an article titled: So Many Christian Infants.
