It takes time..

Recently my wife made some soup – it was delicious. I made the mistake of asking how it was made. It took a long time to prepare the vegetables, it had to simmer for a long time and the vegetables needed to be blended and puréed. It took a long time and a lot of effort. I thought ‘I prefer eating it to making it’.

Developing cafechurch can be a bit like that… we want the success without the process. We need the tenacity to keep going, to do the mundane things consistently enough until we find the thing that works. May I encourage you in the process you are going through right now? It will produce something that is really, really good.
