The Secret of A Good Mega Restaurant Chain….Umm No…Church!

A friend of mine on Facebook scribbled this finishing remark found in a review of a bad London restaurant [which] could be said of many seemingly-successful churches: 

“Perhaps the secret to the restaurant business in this country – in particular in London – is not to concentrate on the food, but to give people a place they want to go and be with large numbers of other people who appear to be having a good time. If they see that, they’ll tell themselves that they, too, are having a good time. S__ has mastered that, to me, slightly depressing trick.”

    I hear you. I have attended both large and small churches and on several occasions, the ones with the most people seemed the emptiest. Of course this is not always the case. But is general, I think that more than anything, humans like to hide out in the open. When you go to a insanely large church it is easier to do that. I guess there are pluses to that too, but for now that doesn’t work for me.

    Many restaurants have just as sound teaching as many churches these days…
