The Future Church

The president of the Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada puts out an occasional pastoral letter.  Most deal with the trends in the church, as he sees them.  The latest is on "The Future Church".

Probably the most interesting question he addresses is "Questions Three:  If the youth of today become the board of elders of tomorrow (way past ten years from now), how will they change the church?"

A lot of interesting answers in this part of the letter.  Things like letting the church be messy, being humble, grassroots.  A redefinition of success —  the church more as an alternate society than being relevant — since relevant seems to mean being like the rest of our culture.

One statement of interest — "Music will continue to be important.  One leader said that gyms will not be as important for the next church as recording studios."
