Q & A 9

Q: Where did you get the idea for "No Perfect People Allowed?" I went to a church that has the same slogan, though it is older.

A: I got it from a book by that title written by John Burke. Our logo was from the cover of the book and was used with permission. Burke's book is written to Christian leaders and is about creating a "come as you are" culture in the church. His church is in Austin, TX. I'm not sure where he got the phrase from (I don't think he coined it), but I really like the book and the work they're doing down there. At our Board and Elder retreat on Saturday, we watched a talk given by Burke (on DVD) on the topic of his book. Very powerful.
