I don't want to hijack some other threads where folks who care deeply about the salvation of the lost are basically saying you don't care if you still do things in a traditional manner at church. I ran across this interesting "happening" a while back at church. A pastor was quoting from a Barna survey (don't know which one but might can find it later) claiming that church needed to go to contemporary format/music/casual dress/revamp the building to look like a mall because "only about a third of unchurched people under age 40 will come to a traditional church." Ok, maybe he has a point--no, wait, he is putting the survey stats up on the screen. Showed that for those for whom worship style is a biggie in that age group (which was the minority) around 35% wanted traditional. Next biggest group wanted all the contemporary stuff--that was 16%. That completely refuted what he was telling us. Maybe we should drop the idea either side in the larger (not just music) worship war "don't care about the lost." Might be time to give each other grace. And remember local church autonomy.
