There is a spoof commercial that's floated around the internet for a few years that makes the point better than I have here. I've posted this before, but it's worth a repeat. Enjoy the Monday Funnies. . .

The Monday Funnies
Sunday afternoon, I had an interesting discussion with a handful of parish leaders about the difference between churches that cater to consumers and the churches that challenge us to participate in our faith. We talked about how easy it is to lapse into the language of retail sales to attract "seekers," and how that language can lead us away from creating a faith-filled community. When it is all about me, it can't really be about anyone else.
