WHAT PEOPLE EXPECT FROM THE CHURCH: Why Meeting the needs of people is more important than church meetings by Robert Randall. R. Randall demonstrates that people have four basic yearnings: to be understood, to understand, to belong, and to hope. He believes that the church is in a survival mode at present because it focuses too much on maintaining structures and programs-and not enough on meeting the relational yearnings that bind together a worshiping community. He shows leaders how to address these relational yearnings so that the Christian congregation may be reestablished and healed. Robert L. Randall, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist at St. Peter's Church of Christ in Elmhurst, IL. He is also the author of 3 previous books and frequent contributor to professional ministry journals including Christian Minstry.
