Change is inevitable. Change will continue to happen.

When we don't change, it's because your dead. If you are alive, you are constantly changing.

The only way you can remain stagnant is if you're dead.

The church is in a state of flux. It must change. The only way to keep it from changing is to kill it.

We kill the church, the body of Christ, when we get stuck in your traditions and institutional ways.

We kill the church, the ministry and the mission of Jesus Christ, when our preferences take precedence over the mission and the ministry to share the good news of Jesus Christ with the millions of people who don't know him yet. When we allow our musical, liturgical, our personal preference a style of music to be the ultimate priority - that's IDOLATRY!!!

The only way to keep from changing is to die. And that simply will not be an option for me. Not until God calls me home. I will lead to do whatever it takes to accomplish the mission and the ministry of Jesus Christ to declare the good news that God so loved the world that he gave his only Son that whosoever should believe in him will not perish but have everlasting life.

There's something to be said about tradition. Without traditions we cease to be who we are collectively and individually.
