Thoughts on Ministry

I have been thinking a lot about authenticity lately. There is no question that authenticity is critical to ministry, especially in today’s American church and the postmodern/hyper postmodern culture. There is also no question that authenticity cannot be created or faked, it is borne out of who you really are and your relationship with God. Authenticity is dangerous. Too much or too little can break a person or a ministry. What is most interesting to me as I look at the makeup and leadership of suburban churches today, I notice that the things that the boomer generation wants and needs the most out of their leaders is authenticity. At the same time they are afraid to offer that authenticity themselves; often stuck in a corporate approach to church. What is the right balance of authenticity in ministry?
