Christians are increasingly aware that we live in a post-Christian culture. We recognize the need to adapt, but are unsure of the way forward. Everyday Church: Gospel Communities on Mission by Tim Chester and Steve Timmis offers practical ideas for engaging with secularized society and does so in a way that is enfranchising, helping churches rely on their members instead of one leader with a dynamic personality or specialist skills. Chester and Timmis contend that the solution is an “everyday church” doing everyday mission in our ordinary lives.
In the introduction, Chester and Timmis say:
This book is a call for us to be an everyday church with an everyday mission. We need to shift our focus from putting on attractional events to creating attractional communities. Our marginal status is an opportunity to rediscover the missionary call of the people of God. We can recover witness to Christ unmuddied by nominal Christianity.

Because of the way that our culture tends to think of love, being told God loves you can fail to land on us with the beauty and significance that it should.
