When Church Stops Working is a deep, centering breath of fresh air for congregations who feel suffocated by cultural demands to accelerate, innovate, perform, or die. It is a challenging reminder that our faithful God continues to move in the world, and the church’s primary job is to bear witness to that movement and let it move us.
