  14. 14. Why Bother? Genesis 17-18 - Will a son be born to a man 100 years old and a woman the age of 90? Abraham gave the best of what he had . . . Sarah laughed . . . God is NOT done with us and is continually asking us to birth new, irrational and unexpected things.

  15. 15. 21C Culture Shifts Authority and “t”ruth: from a single source of authority to an open source of discernment. eg . . . how we explore and discern Scripture, politics, culture, worship, decision making, etc. changes. SO WHAT? The church must figure integrate new ways of worshipping, discerning and understanding authority. Photo by carbonnyc #SILLIMAN | @BREYESCHOW Thursday, November 14, 2013
  16. 16. 21C Culture Shifts Structure and Adaptability: from a mindset of methodology and “steps” to a of spirit of embraced chaos and institutional fluidity. eg . . . Changes how we structure our communal lives: congregation and councils. SO WHAT? The church in all aspects of its life must become less rigid and more adaptable, flexible and fluid.

  17. 17. 21C Culture Shifts Mobility and Commitment from a life-long commitment to “place” to an expectation of transience and change. eg . . . we change how we perceive a person’s commitment in terms of longevity. SO WHAT? Organizational structures and communal activity must be more adaptive and responsive. Photo by carbonnyc #SILLIMAN | @BREYESCHOW Thursday, November 14, 2013
  18. 18. 21C Culture Shifts Technology and Community: from geographic clustering and isolation to broad global community. eg . . . our understanding and experience of community, privacy and social interaction is broadened. SO WHAT? The church must find faithful and effective ways to utilize social media in all aspects of the church. Photo by splityarn #SILLIMAN | @BREYESCHOW Thursday, November 14, 2013
  19. 19. 21C Culture Shifts Spirituality & Public Engagement from a silent understanding of separating church and state to an increased move to a public expression of faith and politics. eg . . . we acknowledge political realities while encouraging personal discernment. SO WHAT? We must reclaim our voice in the public square and responsibility to nurture the voices of the people. Photo by wy_jackrabbit #SILLIMAN | @BREYESCHOW Thursday, November 14, 2013
  20. 20. 21C Culture Shifts Influence and Social Capital: from a monolithic presence and mindset to a niche reality and opportunity for growth. eg . . . denominational evangelism strategies will change.
