I linked to the first part of this series a couple of weeks ago.
In parts 2 and 3 Skye Jethani expands on his observation of church as destination instead of vehicle.

Here’s the link to part 2 “The church can learn an important lesson from this delusion: Relevance backfires when it overshadows your uniqueness.”

And in part 3 “Large ships trade flexibility for efficiency. The same is true for megachurches. One example occurred in 2005 when Christmas fell on a Sunday. Large churches across the country announced they would not have Sunday worship services on Christmas Day while most smaller churches remained opened.”

Interesting thoughts as a trend in churches seems to toward smaller congregations with simpler program structures.
Everything old is new again.
