“A Different Church in a Different World: New and Improved is Not Enough”
We have experienced cataclysmic change in our society. The arrival of the Internet, mobile devices, and social networking has revolutionized how we live and do business. While the world around us has changed dramatically, the question is: how has the church changed? How should the church change? Is a good website and a presence on social media sufficient to be faithful in this age? If the world we live in is different, then is a new and improved church enough? In this workshop we will reflect on the questions offered and invite the participants to dream of the church God is calling in this age.
