John Wimber, founder of the Vineyard movement of churches, wasn’t renowned as a systematic religious teacher.
Apparently people would ask him “John, when are you going to teach us the deep and crucial stuff – where’s the meat?”
And he’d answer: “The meat is on the street.”
That is, “Go out into the world. You will learn the deep truths of faith by doing it.”
Books, podcasts, blogs are very useful in learning to make positive change in the world. Ideas are wonderful tools.
But we learn our most important lessons by doing – by taking action.
The meat is on the street.
