Bob and Joanna, Pastor Gwyneth and Ingrid attended a district workshop last weekend on “Adaptive Change” in the church, led by a consultant from the Alban Institute. One of the most interesting aspects was studying how the old “general store” has adapted over the years to become the one-stop grocery markets of today due to major shifts in our culture such as cars, marketing, technology, people on-the-go, etc.. It was interesting to consider how churches have (or have not) adapted to these cultural changes so as to reach more people with the love of Christ. What thoughts and ideas does this raise for you?!
