Pretty good title… It comes, I guess, from a Nichole Nordeman song. Over at NextWave.org
There’s an article about the status quo. Now, I think that most of us in the UMC realize that the status quo just isn’t working any more, but we are not sure what will work. Added to that, I have yet to be convinced that we even know what “working” will even look like. Nevertheless, we know that things must change.

The article is here and deals with disruptive change. Perhaps it is time in the UMC to have some “disruptive” change. I for one believe that if we do away with statistics and membership it would cause us to take a new look at who we are, what we do, why we do what we do, and what it means to be church. While we are at it…perhaps revisiting worshiping on Sunday morning might be a good exercise…..talk about your disruptive change!
