I don’t remember how I got on the Saddleback Church mailing list, but was fascinated with the following email and its implications. Obviously megachurches are showing substantial growth and there probably is at least one in your metropolitan area. I know there is a prominent one which seems to attract Asian Americans where I live. It’s a place that offers a number of resources without, how shall I say this, the baggage of an immigrant church or the growing pains of a second generation church. Is this the future? While we debate and hack it out, are many just opting out? Multi-ethnic and ethnic under one roof, now that’s the best of both worlds, isn’t it? Is it? Asian American churches– are we too small in our vision? Or can we unearth the diamonds in our rough?
