12 step group

Twelve step groups help people who are addicted to a particular thing.  The support group helps them to break out of destructive behavior and return to a real life.

Bill Easum in his book Leadership on the Other Side, suggests that churches need a 12 step group so that they can learn how to change with the times.

Churches need a 12-step group for those addicted to old forms.  '"Hi, my name is Bill.  I attend this church because I know it is the one place in my life where nothing is ever going to change." pg. 38

How funny, yet how true.  if there is anything that we know about God, he is always asking us to change, to leave our old ways and find the path of life that is the most effective.  Are you comfortable with change?

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.

One of the biggest testaments to change being good is WCC's own example of establishing the Worship Center. In fact, I sometimes feel a breathe of relief that our church made it just in time, to accommodate those who enjoy contemporary worship.

I know this cost Jeff lots of lost sleep trying to deal with the naysayers. But when I look at the crowds in there today, I just thank God that we didn't put this change off any longer. Like it or not, contemporary worship reaches the newer generations of our time.
