A Wonderful Mistake

Years ago I learned from Rev. John Piippo, pastor of Redeemer Church in Monroe, the importance of a church being focused on God's presence rather than being person-centered, program-centered or even purpose-centered. As our church has increasingly sought to be Spirit-led, we have come to see how often the unexpected becomes an opportunity rather than an embarrassment. by David Nichols - FBC, Kalamazoo
