“It’s All About the Bike”

author: Dave Hileman, Executive Director

Just completed a book entitled “It’s All About the Bike” by Robert Penn. Penn has been riding for more than 30 years and decided to build his ultimate bike that was unique for him. So he researched the best hand-built component for his type of riding from frame to headset to wheels. He talked about a brief history of that part and then what would be the best for him and visited the factory or craftsman and watched his part being made.

I thought as I read this how much each church could benefit from the same process. Is your nursery the best it can be for your church? Is your fourth grade classroom or your outreach to the community? What could make it better, what would make it unique for your church? Is each component of your worship the best and most creative it can be in your context? Careful attention to all the details can produce a really fine example of a bike perfectly suited to the rider or a church perfectly suited to reach the community.
