As I have preached through the series of Values we aspire to as a church I am constantly urged by the passion I have to have a church that my children love, and want to be a part of.
This message I preached on Sunday touches on some of Mark Sayers work, and my own thoughts on this generation coming up. What will it take to reach them….to have a church that truly is relevant to them? We need to understand their values. They are different…they are unique. As Paul said, we must be all things to all people in order to reach them.
O my people, listen to my instructions.
Open your ears to what I am saying,
2 for I will speak to you in a parable.
I will teach you hidden lessons from our past—
3 stories we have heard and known,
stories our ancestors handed down to us.
4 We will not hide these truths from our children;
we will tell the next generation
about the glorious deeds of the Lord,
about his power and his mighty wonders”
