Josh Ferris wonders what we communicate by putting a comparatively large amount of resources into a single day:
It’s the stuff of church staffer dreams. The parking lot is jammed, teams of coffee-amped volunteers are bustling, the band is running through that great new song, and very soon, crowds of regulars, guests, and returners will begin pouring through the doors. It’s Easter Sunday, a full house, and the energy is intoxicating.
In almost every church across the country, Easter brings more of what we all want most – people. That’s not a bad thing. After all, our God-given mission is to make disciples. And by it’s nature, disciple making requires people. So on a day of big numbers, we unleash the full weight of our creativity, preparation, and resources to leverage a once a year experience that wows the masses.
