Ten Things the Church Needs to Change, But Won’t

I’ve spent years studying and considering the nature, function, and future of the Church. While some see no future for the church, I have hope: granted, that hope is small. I’ve written five books centering on what the Church needs to do to move forward.

I’m willing to get on the dance floor, flailing my arms around, jumping around like a crazy man, even if I’m dancing off beat, I dance. I don’t care if people make fun of me, because I’m having fun.
