Week 7- Response to Harmony’s Blog

Harmony asked a really good question about putting a price on God. People are more concerned today about the design of the products we buy than we are about the actual functioning of the products themselves. Harmony laments that it is sad that this world has come to value appearance over actual product. I would agree wholeheartedly (although I often find myself doing the very same thing), and I would add that the church is not exempt from this charge. We often do hype up the presentation of the God message such that we don’t really know what lies beneath the toots and whistles. In Church Next, Eddie Gibbs notes that post-moderns today truly want authenticity in coming to a church, not an experience that is well designed. We need to pay attention to that.
