The second thing is that the ministries in the neighborhoods are programmatically driven. The imagination is about how a church can develop (or work with external programs) programs to meet needs in the context. This seems to be driven by the center of the church organization instead of something that arises out of the context. The church sets the table "for" instead of "with" those in the context. It seems that the church has had such a long history of approaching those outside the church in a monologue that we don't know how to enter dialogue.
This programmatic approach can bring transformation, but it seems to me that in our pluralistic, high change society makes it nearly impossible to develop programs that actually meet needs. The only way is to empower grass-root experiments that develop and grow from the ground up. If this is what these books mean, then I missed the point. But if it is what they mean they should have made it more obvious.
