Is Your Faith-Family Worth Imitating?

Great post on Mike Breen's blog today. Ask yourself this question. Here's his question:

Is your family worth imitating?
by Mike Breen
My friend Chris Norman said this a little while ago and thought it was worth posting:

Discipeship is about whether you have a life worth imitating.
Oikos [your extended family on mission] is about whether you have a family worth imitating.

I wonder how many of us are living in such a vibrant, healthy, missional extended family (probably 20-40) that when people see it, they see a family they'd like to be part of. That when they see it, they'd want that kind of family, but could also model what they do in their family based on what they see in yours?
