An article in last month's edition of Premier Christianity magazine reminded me that if things don't change; they will stay the same.
The article is about the church run by the group Hillsong; there is a lot of discussion going on about how the services are being broadcast and the fact the group of young people involved sing as though they are doing a rock concert, not a church service.
To the older readers - my age is 62 - we've been there before, in the 70's with the musical Godspell that brought a new vitality to the church.
I can't say I approve of the style, but if they can get the word of the Lord to the masses, all power to them.
To me, a church service should have some dignity, like the services of the Jimmy Swaggart ministries where the crowd are appropriately dressed, but then I am old-fashioned, and it is the word of the Lord that matters not what you wear.
