This week, Pastor Craig Groeschel of LifeChurch.tv, has begun an intriguing series of blog posts about the future of the church:
- Future of the Church 1 (of 5) – larger and smaller
- Future of the Church 2 (of 5) – more Bible, less fluff
- Future of the Church 3 (of 5) – more diversity and more unity
- Future of the Church 4 (of 5) – more missional and less consumeristic
- Future of the Church 5 (of 5) – Higher Tech and Higher Touch
Again, these are theories and tentative ideas, not predictions. I know many people have a fascination with predicting the future, and once in a while it can be good to ruminate about these things. Click-thru the above links to read them — there’s a lively discussion in the comment threads.
