Six major shifts

Thanks to Rick at Blind Beggar for flagging up a post from Chuck Warnock over at Confessions of A Small-Church Pastor highlighting six major shifts taking place in churches.

  1. The shift from observation to participation.
  2. The shift from religious education to spiritual formation.
  3. The shift from “what does it mean” to “what does it say to me” in Scripture reading.
  4. The shift from “hereafter” to the “here-and-now.”
  5. The shift from the individual to the community.
  6. The shift from belief to practice.

The ability to spot what’s really going on and to express it so clearly and succinctly is a rare gift – I encourage you to read Chuck’s post first hand.
