Or are we just doing something that kind of works? Are we really thinking outside the box to reach people with the life saving message of the Gospel? Or are we tied to traditions and culture that keep our church people happy?
These questions were launched this morning by a fellow blogger who wrote:
With both American church planters and missionaries, my observation has been that anything done out of tradition is not likely to reach the unchurched. Tradition is something established so that people can continue a meaningful experience. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. But we have to remember that the unchurched don’t attach value to things that they didn’t actually experience themselves.
