Dr. Soong-Chan Rah :: Idealism’s Missing Ingredient

  • Dr. Soong-Chan Rah, Author and Professor of Church Growth and Evangelism at North Park Theological Seminary, learned about the need for idealism to be coupled with commitment while pastoring a very young church that specialized in urban ministry. “What I saw was the danger of cynicism. The danger of giving up.” Young college students would get fired up about changing the world. But they would also burn out when they couldn’t quickly solve all of a community’s problems. “Idealism is easy to conjure up, but the commitment is much harder to work through.”
