Actively Disengaged

I ran across a quote from a co-labor in the ministry. He mentioned that he has found a lot of people in the Christendom are actively disengaged. Appearing to be ‘active’ while simultaneously being unengaged. There numerous reasons for this I don’t believe I want to get into this in this blog. I do believe there is some value in discussing what engagement looks like. The question is rather simple. What does it mean to be engaged? What distinguishes engagement vs. involvement (or passive aggressively or going through the motions.)

And to avoid our overly postmodern (felt need, what I feel)-prone philosophy of life: Is there a biblical explanation of one (corporately) being engaged vs. appearing to be active? Your responses are appreciated. Hopefully you are not “neither hot nor cold….
