The New York Times reports of a multi-cultural church transformation in Georgia. This story is about a church that knew it had to change to meet the needs of the growing multi-national community around it. The church culture had to change, but the gospel didn’t.
Do you ever wonder how you can pray for your friends who don’t know Christ? Here is a simple acronym to pray through: HEART.
Sally Morganthaler, author of Worship Evangelism, has changed her mind about the connection between worship and Evangelism.
This is a major shift in her thinking that has led her to a deep personal cost: dismantling her teaching ministry and website. I had high regards for her book, but also agree with her evaluation as to what has become of “worship driven” churches.
She writes: “For all the money, time, and effort we’ve spent on cultural relevance—and that includes culturally relevant worship—it seems we came through the last 15 years with a significant net loss in churchgoers, proliferation of megachurches and all.”
Have a great weekend.
