McDonalds and Church


I've been thinking a little lately. Our churches are much like McDonalds...

When you go to McDonalds you know what to expect. The menu is set. You know the cost before you walk in. In fact, not often does the price you pay differ from normal. The service is predictable. The layout is the same in many McDonalds restaraunts.

Church. You know what to expect. The meeting lead is set. You know the cost before you walk in. In fact, not often does the price you pay differ from normal. The service is predictable. The layout is the same in many Church buildings.

Our Australian culture. People are different. Immigration sees many differing nationalities. People enjoy varying things. People have a whole lot of personalities. Our lives are unpredictable. Our homes are unique, with the style that we have chosen.

To effectively impact communities with the Gospel, with all their variety and passions, we can't put forward a McDonalds style church.
