So one of my goals for this year was to read 18 books. I finished my first one last night: "Simple Church". Pretty good, although I felt like a lot of it was covered in "Breakout Churches", but the ideas certainly deserved to be implemented. The main focus is on creating a simple ministry process for your church, helping the church understand that process, aligning all ministries in the church to that process, and eliminating anything that doesn't fit into that process. My favorite line is when he is talking about how to transition your church from complex to simple he says regarding timing "Get there as fast as you can but not faster". Good advice. JM
