gentle and respectful change

It’s not true that you have to break eggs to make omelets. You can make a couple of small holes in the egg shell and blow out the tasty part, keeping the beautiful part intact. Win-win! I think we can use that technique to inform our changes to worship.

Our senior minister, Rev. Christine Robinson, wrote a book called The Twittered Tao, which I recommend to you. Here’s today’s tweet, apropos of changing worship styles:

Honor a thing before you
demand change. There’s less
resistance that way. Flexibility
and gentleness are effective.
