Your God Is Too Small (To Reach Millennials)

Chasing coolness won’t work. In my experience, churches that try to be cool end up with a pathetic facsimile of what was cool about 10 years ago. And if you’ve got a congregation of businessmen and soccer moms, donning a hip veneer will only make you laughable to the younger generation.

  1. Glad you added the bit in parentheses. You know where the original title comes from – A “God” that contradicts his word by bringing the spirit of C.S.Lewis back from the dead to speak to J.B.P. is a size too “great” for me! Incorporating the imaginary numbers into the set of all numbers (whether the set of all fractionals or the larger set of all reals) doesn’t make the set any larger (If I were a real mathematician I could prove this).

  2. Good insight. In my experience, churches who try such things can be smelled a mile away by those they are trying to reach! I keep telling people everywhere that the 20 and 30 somethings want worship with substance and meaning. I am a parent to 4 of them and can testify to that.
