Change seems to be the order of the day. Look forward to the future. As a Christian community, are we affecting change? The church must succeed on the tools and ideas that fit the culture of the church. Faith without works is useless. While we want to preserve the past, we must prepare the future.
God does not do things haphazardly. “We’ve never done it that way before” are the 7 last words of the church. The church is shrinking. People are not drawn into the church anymore – church as in the whole church. With change and flexibility, we can define the future. Embrace change.
