Church Planting: A Compliment and a Warning
Recently I visited a church near Budapest, which actually came into being through concern for a minority, for a group of 20 former alcoholics. It is, therefore, no surprise that in four years time, this church has grown to over 130 people. Last year, about 20 young families joined after a meeting was started for mothers with young children. In the kitchen, I had a chat with the pastor's wife. It is something I often hear, "Actually, we are at the end of our tether! My husband is so busy with church work that he hardly has time for his family. It is very difficult to involve church members."
