What used to not work works again

The world is in constant motion. It seems the Church isn’t always aware of this basic fact. If we aren’t careful we can flog a dead horse, so to speak, that isn’t going to get us where we hope to arrive. This truth is especially accurate today with the ubiquitous presence of technology. Things change at an amazing speed all over the globe. The contrary point is also true. What worked long ago, then didn’t work for a time, now works once again. Outreach is like that. Things run their course, they pass away, then are resurrected at a later time. Sometimes God reinvigorates approaches to ministry. If we are wise we will pay attention to what he is doing instead of criticizing things out of hand simply because they once were ineffective.
