I know the title gets the phrase backward, but it is likely more true that the church would be better off if we did less and stood more. The church operates like a rock in a whitewater stream. We stand against the current and redirect its course. Of course, our hope is to rescue those who otherwise would be swept away by the stream into destruction. At any rate, I have linked here a post from Jared Wilson who makes a good case that the church should do much less, for the sake of unity, purpose, clarity, and direction. I think I agree. Check out the list of 10 reasons to do less.
