Change Is Changing

Description

Change is constant. Always has been. But, it appears change is unique these days.

It seems to me that change is changing. Change is constant. Always has been. But, in my opinion, it appears change is unique these days.

It’s changing.

Here are 3 ways change is changing:

  1. Faster – The speed of change has accelerated. From technology, to clothing styles, to the way we communicate, the pace of change is faster than ever before.
  2. Less thought put into it – Getting to market seems more important than thinking through what you take to market. It’s bound to have an impact on quality, but that’s okay. The important thing is that new is introduced. At the current pace, it seems to me it would be impossible to put the research, design, and quality control into all the changes being introduced.
  3. Acceptance – Change appears to be more expected today than ever before in my lifetime. It’s almost anticipated. I’m not pretending it’s easier once change is introduced. People still naturally resist change, but it’s almost an understood now that change is part of culture.

These are purely my observations. Obviously, I could be wrong on some of them. My question, however, as a church, since we have a message which can never be changed, how do we adapt to the way change is changing? We can’t change our message, yet we must reach a fast-changing society.

I have questions:

  • How do we adjust?

  • How do we keep up?

  • Do we even try?

  • Are there ways the church should be changing as fast as the world?
