Incarnational V Attractional Mission

This is a good thought provoking read about mission and the local church by Andrew Hamilton. It's a bit old (2005) but here's a taste, click on the title to go to the link.

If Jesus were alive today and his mission was still to ‘seek out and save the lost’ what might he do?…

Would he hire a building, set up a sound system, develop a music team, drama team, and then do local letterbox drops advising people that they could come and be part of his church on Sunday? Frankly I don’t believe this approach to mission would rate a blip on his strategic radar.
