Every church should look like its zip code.
This statement was what I walked away with today. As I thought about what this means to me and my ministry, I was reminded of a cliche my youth pastor used ad nauseum… be Jesus with skin on. If we are fulfilling the call to go into all the world, if the church is being salt and light, if we are truly in the world but not of it (I think sometimes we forget the IN part of that verse), then we should be in harmony with our surroundings. Jesus stood out, but for the good he did, not because he was some cultural oddball.
