Relevance is seen as a dirty word in some circles. But what gives life in our parishes?
Whilst I am resistant to any thinking that suggests we don't need to think about change or retuning our telling of the gospel for today's ears and eyes, I was struck by this quote from this article..
"At church, I do not want to be entertained. I do not want to be the target of anyone’s marketing. I want to be asked to participate in the life of an ancient-future community.”
