The Church As A Clinic: Leading Hurting People In The Church To The Great Physician, Jesus Christ
Billy Graham once said: "The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service. The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless." It is this statement that forms the core message of this title, The Church As A Clinic. Dr. Danso points out a tragedy within the Church today that many people are hurting or being wounded by the fellow Christian believers, and that it is high-time the Church shifted her focus from apparent materialism to a care center, where its members experience true love. The church that cares moreforher people is the Church that is fulfilling the kingdom commission.
Dr. Kofi Danso in this book encourages church leaders to focus more on their shepherding roles, which is the primary calling of anyone called to lead God's people. Furthermore, he stresses that the church can have a tremendous impact and effect transformation when she begins to see herself as a clinic, taking quality care of the souls of her members and community, pointing people to Christ, and going beyond meeting the spiritual needs of individuals. Jesus healed physical and emotional diseases. He fed the hungry. He rescued and forgave sinners. He touched lepers and made them whole. He ministered to children. We must do the same toda
