What would happen if McDonald’s ran its franchises like the average local church? A skilful but frazzled manager would be seen throughout the day taking orders, making change, salting the French fries, and assembling Big Macs- all while six other employees behind the counter stood off to one side, applauding politely and gushing, “I’m so impressed with the way you spread the special sauce. I could never do that. And the deft way you put those ketchup packets in the bag. You’ve had training. You’ve been to hamburger seminary.”Ouch.
It's from the book The Disciple-Making Church: From Dry Bones to Spiritual Vitality by Glenn McDonald.
Hmmm. Something to think about.
