The Pareto Principle: 20% of the people do 80% of the work. A recipe for burnout - even in the church!
This week begins a sermon series on the early church and how we can learn from the apostles as they organized the Body and served God in the community and the world. One of the things the church fathers discovered early on was that if they were to share the gospel of Christ and live out the gospel they shared, it was going to take more than a few of them working together - 20% of the disciples serving and leading wasn’t going to be enough - so what did they do?
What are we called to do as God’s church today?
