They Like Jesus But Not the Church

Perhaps a better title is “They Like Jesus But Not Christians.”

One of the things I love about Covenant is the tag line to our mission statement…

We make every decision on behalf of, and in the best interest of, those who are not yet here.

If that is true, we have to take the words of the people in this video (and others just like them) seriously.

Discovering and Escaping Liturgy

Dan Kimball writes about the complex worship practices of young adults…

I realized that worship trends among the young were complicated. Those raised in contemporary churches found practicing liturgy and following the church calendar refreshing and meaningful. But some who had grown up in traditional and liturgical churches saw these same practices as lifeless or routine. They were eager to incorporate more contemporary forms. One group wanted to rediscover the past, and the other was trying to escape it.
