“The problem is that the best ideas take time to grow. We’re so afraid of distraction, we’ve made almost every great church the same: singing, preaching, praying, eating.
Creative experimentation doesn’t only generate beautiful ideas, but beautiful people also. The very process forms and funds our understanding of Christian spirituality, catalyzing both our personal development and our missiological future. If we don’t start experimenting now, it will be too late once we wake up and realize we’re irrelevant.
God’s plans to heal the world may include more than these components. We can still sing, preach, pray and eat, but why not tinker with the formula to see if—maybe—God is still in the business of making things up and making things new?”
