She’s a pretty girl. Talented, gifted, friendly, outgoing; yet, lonely, troubled, and searching! She’s willing to tell her story, and it’s full of life events that causes her plenty of grief.

I love this picture I came across recently that shows how things used to be in media, and are now. I have also recently compared some business approaches to change in other venues and was reminded what happened to Atari and Kodak. When they claimed bankruptcy both companies confessed, “they were asleep at the wheel.” Other companies were brighter, more visionary, more willing to risk, making internal changes that effectively made them more successful externally, and listening to their customer needs. The church is no different, we must be willing to change to meet the needs of the people. If we can reach them through social media, then we should make our way there. If we need to be more “web-savvy” to connect people, then we need to plan accordingly. If what we do is considered outdated by the masses, guess what, the masses will not stay. Please hear me…I am NOT talking about God’s truths found in scripture changing. I am speaking to an issue of style and connectivity…neither of which we should be fearful of. I’m not looking for the next best band, or performance…just a bit of willingness to get out of old habits that have nothing to do with God’s word and more willingness to place the needs and desires of others above our own (as long as those needs don’t conflict with the word of God). So, let’s be willing to give up our “spot that we’ve always sat in” and move over for the person intrigued but not yet committed to Christ!
