  1. Have I told you how much I appreciate your teaching/preaching, Tim? Your ability to preach the Word in a relevant way has blessed us immensely. I agree that we shouldn’t be afraid of the new, but find out how it can be used for God’s glory. Change is good. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

  2. Thank you for addressing this Tim! This is a HUGE topic that I think is often over looked. I think we are far too often afraid of being relevant. We’re too afraid of trying new things, even if it is good and biblical. And yes, it is something our media-crazed society is turned off by, because we’re not doing it. Having a relevant church (and ministry) website is a big thing too. We need to be culturally relevant to effectively reach out to our culture. Thank you for talking about this Tim. God bless. Grace and Peace.
