I agree it is not about trying to change to a better system or the latest music, though that indeed can be more appealing, but about walking out the front door and meeting people where they are rather than trying to entice them to come to you. I'm a Unitarian Universalist ministerial candidate. I often don't feel like going to church myself. I do feel like listening deeply and pastorally to the Lindy Hoppers I dance with about their lives each week. I observe the rituals and community created. Folks are often surprised to hear of my ministry status and background-and then at some future point they often seek me out to tell me something they have been struggling with in their life or beliefs. Same at work among colleagues at the Cancer Center. There is a need for people to have other experiences if being heard and witness faith in action not just them coming to us on a Sunday morning for an hour (and really, as a non-morning person, I would be in favor of just a bit of window dressing the day and time?)

Mapping the 21st Century Ministry Landscape at The BTC Center Bearings blog 
As a kid, I loved making maps. When I was around eight years old, I would ride around our neighborhood for hours on my bike, cruising the sidewalks, streets, alleyways, and dirt trails that connected and intersected the townhomes in our development. When I came home I would record the pathways I ...
