Ever Wonder if We’re Dead Yet?

We become interested, sometimes even obsessed, with our legacies as we pass mid-life and reflect upon what it is we will hand off to those we leave behind. Organizations, whose legacies can be far more profound than those of individuals, must do this as well, especially as they experience decline. What is the legacy of the liberal church? And what is it that we can do to ensure that what we hand off to those who follow us is the best we have to offer?
