Mike Cosper waxes reminiscent on 20 years of church planting with Sojourn:

The fervor of youth and the fresh vigor of faith makes it feel like you’ve stumbled into some unknown land, a place that the generation ahead of you missed somehow. It isn’t arrogance that makes you think, “This is it, we’ve figured it out.” It’s innocence. The innocence of your own hearts, whose corruption and weakness has yet to be tested and revealed under the ordinary pressures of marriage, work, family, and suffering.

This flooded my mind with memories of our own church planting adventures over the past 20 years. So fun to read.
