Or, Leave it...
The opposite of change, I once read, is death. If you're living, you're changing.
I was made aware of a very large, and very growing church that purposely tries to change at least 10% of what they are doing each year. That has to be a difficult metric to track, but the heart of the metric is that they are able to continue to grow, evaluate, reach people and make a major difference in their community because they are willing to constantly change. By the way, they realize that if they DON'T change at least 10% every year, in just 5 short years half of what they are doing will be ineffective. That's an eye-opener!
So, how much change is too much?
How can a local church continue to serve the members that are present (an important role), while still focusing on the people that need Christ the most?
I have my thoughts...but, I'd really like to hear yours!
