Ten days after the attacks on the World Trade Center Towers, I stood at Ground Zero and tried to take in the aftermath of one horrific day.;The thoughts of that made me cry out to God, No way!;There's just no way evil can be that deep and that dark!;But strangely, while the ashes smoldered around me, and the grief of it overwhelmed me, a profound hope rose in my heart--the local church is the hope of the world.;There were many people and organizations helping out after the disaster.;But a work of a deeper kind was happening behind the scenes in downtown Manhattan.;The most important work of all was being done by pastors and church members, volunteers of churches, ordinary Christ followers.;They were in the middle of all the misery, addressing the concerns of the soul.
When the spiritual gift of leadership comes alive in churches everywhere, the church will become the hope of the world and a most influential force for good.
