Communication in our culture changes — what will be next? So why shouldn’t communication in church services change to better connect with contemporary culture? What we don’t need is “a failure to communicate.”
–The way our culture communicates continually changes — from snail mail, to rotary phones, to faxing, to cell phones, to email, to texting.
–However, the way we do church — one man lecturing a passive, silent crowd — has stayed the same for 100s of years.
–Perhaps Christ can better be communicated to our contemporary culture by a change in how we do church — by a shift from lecture to open, Spirit-led sharing and participation.
“Companies that openly engage employees on everything that’s going on at work, will be able to retain them more.” –Dan Schawbel
–Perhaps churches should also “openly engage” people and give them the freedom to speak out in church meetings as they are led by the Holy Spirit!
You can better face the outside, when you have Jesus living on the inside! Nothing or no one satisfies the longings of my heart like Jesus! I get my highs on Jesus — He lifts me up and never leaves me hung over! (A high followed by a hang-over is like a parachute that doesn’t open.) Without Jesus I’d be a mess!
