A friend of mine just posted a link to this article on facebook: http://www.relevantmagazine.com/god/church/features/26050-is-your-church-too-cool
I confess I don’t know very much about the author, so I don’t know whether she has a general anti-church mindset, or whatever – but I really feel that this article is an honest reflection of how churches in our modern, technologically minded society can be.
A lot of what the author says is true; she’s quite critical but she ends by revealing the heart of the matter:
Some of us wear our brokenness on the inside, others on the outside. But we’re all broken. We’re all uncool. We’re all in need of a Savior. So let’s have some distracting church services—the kind where Jesus would fit right in.
I’d encourage you (if anyone’s reading this!) to read and really consider what she says in the article, and make up your own mind what you think…it’s definitely worth a few minutes of your time.
