It's actually the purpose statement of my church. I would argue that whatever you put in writing, it should be the purpose statement of yours too.
Yesterday our church got a call from a man in seminary looking for our mission statement... which, being the mature people we are, we immediately began throwing out our "purpose statements."
Here were a few:
Hate God, Hate People, Serve Self.
Acknowledge God, Ignore People, Serve Self.
Acknowledge God, Ignore Truth, Serve Self.
Here's the deal: The only thing that makes this remotely amusing is the fact that it mirrors our churches.
Gulp. God, may it not mirror me or the ministry you entrusted to me.
