Does your church refer to itself as a "community of small groups"? Have you ever wondered exactly what that means?
Recently, Chris Rosebrough, Christian apologist and host of the radio show Fighting for the Faith, delivered a lecture entitled, "Resistance is Futile: You Will Be Assimilated Into the Community". If you've ever noticed that your church leadership speaks more about the "community" than about the individual, then you may want to listen to this lecture.
Rosebrough unpacks the worldview of Peter Drucker, a man whose influence on the church was overwhelming, though few Christians are aware of it. The truths presented in this lecture will help to explain the nature of the "seeker driven" movement, and reveal its goals and motivations.
If you take the time to listen to this presentation, then it is suggested that you also access the powerpoint slides and additional resources here.
One final note: Rosebrough begins his teaching with a brief, but necessary overview of some key points and people in history. Even if you are not a "history person," do not allow yourself to tune out for this portion. What is taught in these first few minutes will provide a crucial foundation for what is revealed later in the lecture.
