I think we are asking the wrong question when we ask if the church is “relevant”.
Screw relevant.
People are done with relevant.
Seriously.
We are in a time a place where the world is waiting for an answer of Hope.
And I can promise you this.
Hope is not being sought after in relevance.
Hope is being sought after in real relationships.
So when you sit down in your next creative meeting, elder meeting, sermon planning meeting…
Do you’re community a favor and don’t ask how you can make your next series or concept relevant.
Instead ask how you can make your members and staff relational and real.
