Ecclesiastes tells us there is a time for everything under the sun.
Birth, death, planting, healing, mourning, dancing, etc.
There are times and seasons in our lives, and in the life of our church.
There are seasons for this or that.
A permanent this or that is never a good idea.
For ministry and mission can never be standardised and eternalised.
The Spirit blows where it wants to.
The Churches in Revelation all had their folly and foibles.
The genius of the Ephesus church was her patient endurance.
Its sublime rejection of all that is evil.
Its ability to test and consider those who are true or false. Etc.
That was their genius.
