I’ve been setting course to church plant after I graduate for a number of years. For the longest time I’ve been contemplating doing something different, better, more innovative, than church as usual.
At the end of the day though, I find many of my ideas haven’t been all that radical.
Just because our church might be more creative, more current, more engaging, work harder, be more balanced, be more missional, more tech-savvy, more relational, and on and on… I wonder if these changes would still just be incremental?
It scares me to think that I might just end up producing more of the same.
The word radical comes from the word root or origins. When I look at the church in the new testament or the history of the early church, that was radical.
What does a radical church look like in today’s context?
