What do you do when your current church is failing spiritually, numerically, and physically, yet they refuse to CHANGE? I'm not talking about changing from traditional to contemporary, or changing names of the church or fundamental beliefs. I'm talking about silly, inmature, pettyness and making every little thing in the church a sacred cow. What do you do when your every effort (no matter how minor) is hindered because people simply refuse to do anything differently, even though what they are doing DOESN'T WORK. I can't even re-do a bulletin board at church because the person who did it before me "might get offended." It hasn't been changed for 4 years. I wasn't allowed to update the nursery (has been the same way for 30 plus years) because "it was good enough for OUR kids, why not other people's kids?" At what point do you kill the sacred cows? Do you just push your ideas, or give up?
