In the beginning…

In the beginning, earth was without form and void, and the Spirit brooded upon the waters of the deep.

And God said:

“Let there be a long prescriptive mission statement. Let there be a clear ecclesiology to separate the church from the world. Let there be committees that yield fruits of every kind. Let there be programming by day and by night. Let there be parliamentary procedure and interoffice memos, creeping or flying between administrative units. Let there be elected officers of every kind, and let the pastor be the CEO.”
And on the seventh day God rested from labor and saw that Christendom was very good.

And church people have been exhausted ever since.
