Relevance…

As our discussions of worship continue at church amid concerns of (gasp) ‘relevance’ to the ‘demographical makeup’ of our community, things from time to time get rather heated and some levity is needed. Last night, after a time of passionate discussion with the congregation, I told our pastor with tongue firmly planted in cheek:

Don’t let thoughts of relevance as a means to draw people to the church take up too much of your time. The two largest Christian bodies on the planet, Roman Catholicism and Orthodoxy, haven’t changed anything substantial in over 1000 years and they aren’t having to worry about this discussion!
