As we gear up to alter our model this fall, it's important we talk about why we even need to change as a church in the first place. The answer is pretty easy to see if we just take a look at our ordinary everyday lives. Over time we all have the ability to pick up some pretty nasty habits, which, if not kept in check, will eventually hurt us or even kill us. The church is very much the same. If we do not stay healthy as a church by embracing community, mission and communion with God, we will eventually get hurt and we may even die. The body of the Bride of Christ must stay healthy just as our normal bodies must. And it's into this analogy that Jamin dives in this message.
