The world around us is changing fast, nothing is the way it used to be just a few years ago. Anyone who resists change will simply be left behind. Innovation is the new buzz word in our world. Except of course in the Church!
Jesus once said the children of this world in their generation are wiser than the children of light (Luke 16:8). That is not supposed to be a compliment, rather a description of the lack of innovative thinking needful to advance the kingdom of God.
We can no longer be content to use "age old" methods that worked in yester years to do ministry in an ever-demanding new day. We cannot be content to use Old Testament methods to accomplish New Testament results. New wine indeed must be poured into new wine skins.
This is a clarion call arousing a sleeping ecclesial to summon all its God given resources to engage in the task and harvest before us. The task is not for a select few but for an equipped and enlightened many. The church must be awakened to disrupt business as usual and engage the priesthood of all believers.
Welcome to the Church that will make the kingdoms of this world the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ!
