Real, but not real Religious...

"Loss of authority results when there is no congruence between words and actions, between presentation and practices.  Authority is lost when something only looks like the real thing.  If we attend church but don't find God, where are we?  Missional churches are seeking to reclaim a place of authority by proving the reality of their message through their lives.  They are seeking to be real, but not real religious." Milfred Minatrea, Shaped by God's Heart: The Passion and Practices of Missional Churches, Jossey-Bass, San Francisco, CA, 2004, 44.
