Everything changes over time...

Blog Post found here.

In this post the author sites another blog's list of how things in the church have changed over time. Change is not always a bad thing, but it is not always a good thing either. Here is the list.

  •  The Lord's Supper has changed from a celebration to a ceremony. 
  • Worship has changed from participation to observation. 
  • Witness has changed from relationship to salesmanship. 
  •  Leadership has changed from servanthood to professionalism. 
  •  Mission has changed from being missionaries to supporting missionaries. 
  • Body life has changed from edification to entertainment. 
  •  Buildings have changed from functional to sacred. 
  • Child care has changed from the hands of parents to the hands of strangers
I find this an excellent source of fodder for conversation. And look forward to a some specific posting over some or maybe even all of these, sharing from my experiences over time. Could be interesting!
