What is the purpose of the Church?
The Church of the 1970’s is over (social-gospel, mainline Protestantism); the Church of the 1990’s is over (Evangelical Seeker); the Church of the 2000’s is ending (GenX Emergent).
The late 20-Century Church model is over, even as the formal structures try in desperation to maintain it.
The culture is no longer with us. What are we to become in this day and this context? That which has endured will continue to endure!
