In a lengthy, but I believe worthwhile, article Bill Hull writes about getting "tired of discipleship because you don't see it working." --Roger
Excerpt: "Through my "dark night of the soul," I gradually realized that something was missing in my life. It was the same thing that my church growth generation has missed. I had forgotten that my life as a leader should be a reflection of my relationship to Christ. Leadership is not about competency and productivity, as we have been led to believe. Our culture values action over contemplation, individualism over community, speed over endurance, fame over humility, and success over the satisfied soul."
