When something needs to be repaired…are you ever tempted to just break out the duct tape?  How many of you still have a vacuum cleaner with electrical tape holding together your power cord?  Have you ever used "fix-a-flat" and not gotten around to actually having the tire fixed?

In life we’re often tempted to just tinker with something when what is needed is real change.  Here’s a great post on tinkering from John Alan Turner.  You’ll love it!  I especially loved this comment: "At some point in time, if a church is going to survive for the next generation, you are going to have to introduce radical changes."  Makes a lot of sense!  What do you think?

Tinkering vs. Real Change
  • I am amazed that my little blog has made it all the way around cyber-space. I guess I stirred some things up b/c I’ve gotten a ton of email about my thoughts.
    I’m going to be in southern California in a few weeks. Ventura to be precise. I’m just there for the weekend, but I’d be up for a visit at Starbucks if you’re interested.

  • Hmmm…I tried to post a comment a second ago. I think the cyber-gods ate it. Anyway, I just wanted to say that I’m going to be in SoCal in a few weeks — Ventura — Sept. 23-25.
    I’d love to hear more about what you’re doing there at Lake Ave and w/ LifeTogether. Shoot me an email if you’re interested.
