Tradition is a good thing. It brings a wealth of knowledge and history and alignment to a somewhat scattered church.
Innovation is a good thing as it brings freedom, newness, and relevance to a somewhat stale church.
Yet both of these things can become numbing.
When you sit on a seat for too long your butt gets numb.
I think we often numb the butts of our people and they need to stand up and walk around.
Quit sitting on your church butt and let that circulation flow!
Things are so much clearer and less numbing when you change positions.
