There’s a question I used to be sure of that now I’m not.
Is 3 better than 1? Is 10 better than 3? Is 100 better than 10?
Look, we all ‘know’ in the Church that numbers aren’t everything, but these days, I’m starting to wonder if numbers aren’t nothing.
We get that they don’t mean everything: that a stadium can be full and people can be flocking to a thing that has nothing to do with God. We know that people love to belong and they love to be a part of movements and that a miracle doesn’t have to happen for them to show up where others do. We have learned that a full room doesn’t mean a movement of God.
