What the Clergy/Laity Distinction Gets Us

Ed Stetzer:

“You can’t assume that people understand their gifts, roles, or the expectations God has for them. Actually, based on the passivity in most churches, I might need to say that you should assume they do not understand the gifts, roles, or the expectations God has for them. My guess, some don’t and some do– but most are either unaware or unwilling. Most of the time, it is some of both.”

I think people have a pretty clear, albeit wrong, idea of what God expects: go to church.

Now, where would they ever get a crazy idea like that?
