If feels counter-intuitive, but I think healthy churches are messy and unhealthy churches often aren't messy at all.
A healthy church will be reaching people who are far from God with the Gospel and those people come to Christ with messed up lives. Being a fisherman is messy business, and being a fisher of men is too. You’ve got to catch a fish before you can clean it.
Unhealthy churches can actually be very clean, neat and easy. When you aren't seeing people coming to faith in Christ - there isn't a lot of messiness... just pettiness.
