Churches: Take a Lesson from the Postal Service


Feb 18 2013
In today's change-or-die culture, we must adapt.

God and his truth do not change over time. Neither does our fundamental calling as his people. We are not here to do Christianity; we are here to be the people Christ is making us into, major improvements on the previous version of ourselves. We are here in this place and time because God wants us here, now. We are here on a God-given mission. As C. S. Lewis wrote in Mere Christianity, "Christianity is the story of how the rightful king has landed, you might say landed in disguise, and is calling us all to take part in a great campaign of sabotage." As circumstances change and new times call for new measures, we will be well-positioned to fulfill this mission when we remember who we really are.
