Consequences of the Shift

I learned about the video, Did You Know 2.0, below in my post Shift Happens through Art Rogers’ blog. It presents some incredible realities of the changing nature of our world as its speed continues to increase exponentially and barriers are eradicated through the internet. The question now becomes:

What are the consequences of these shifts? and…

What do these things mean for the church?

I am first fascinated with the quote from Albert Einstein:

We can’t solve problems by using the same thinking we used when we created them.

From my perspective, the world’s issues cannot be solved by utilizing 19th, or even 20th century, methodology. This is especially true in a church environment, especially the SBC, which appears to believe that church polity first developed in 1952 is in fact a Utopian state.

If culture is adapting, changing, and multiplying at such a pace, then the church’s methodology must also adapt, change, and multiply. The message must remain the same, the delivery must be fluid and adaptable.

What do you think? How are you adapting? What are you doing differently?
