In an attempt to spur church growth I’ve decided to say that we are not going “mainstream,” but actually go mainstream. We are going to replace are 1950’s picture of Jesus in our foyer for the Jesus that is more relevant and appeals to so many.
I have selected two pictures of Jesus to use and a better picture of His Disciples after one betrayed Him. Peter snapped the pic. Preaching from the Bible with the 1950’s pic of Jesus just did not have the Instagram appeal that is needed to create an environment to find hope in. It is likely that with these pics, preaching from the Bible will be more of an experience for those who want to find hope in the 21st Century. What do you think?
